SCRIPT
INT. MODERN STARTUP OFFICE, DAY
The ACCELERATOR walks into frame in front of a clean, modern-looking startup office space.
ACCELERATOR
Me? I like to go fast.
INT. OFFICE MEETING SPACE, DAY
The Accelerator is walking towards camera, holding a hoverboard.
ACCELERATOR
‘Cause in business, it’s all about getting there first.
She turns the hoverboard on as she exits frame.
Cut to a wide shot of the office, where the Accelerator zooms across frame riding a hoverboard, as office workers look on from the background.
ACCELERATOR
And making the most of your time.
INT. OFFICE KITCHEN, DAY
An OFFICE WORKER (late 20s, early 30s, average build) stands in front of a blender, blending a smoothie.
The Accelerator walks into frame and hits the turbo button on the blender.
ACCELERATOR
(over the noise of the blender) It’s going to be so good!

INT. MODERN STARTUP OFFICE, DAY
The Accelerator is seated at a table, directly facing the camera.
Beside her on the table sits a small Monstera plant.
ACCELERATOR
The world moves quickly…
The Accelerator pours liquid from a clearly labeled “plant food” bottle onto the plant. She then pushes the plant out of the frame, without breaking eye contact with the camera.
ACCELERATOR
And your startup should too.
The Accelerator pulls a fully grown Monstera plant back into the frame without breaking eye contact with the camera.
The shot goes out of focus as the accelerator logo fades in. SUPER: ACCELERATING STARTUPS (AMONG OTHER THINGS)
ACCELERATOR
(slightly muted)Wow, this thing just won’t stop growing.
