500 Startups is bringing founders a new one-of-a-kind accelerator experience.
We’ve redesigned our San Francisco accelerator to better suit your needs.
No more deadlines. We are now accepting applications for our four-month seed program 365 days a year.
What do founders get out of the program?
Here are a few reasons why founders choose 500:
Starting a company is solitary. Working with your peers who are going through the same challenges makes a huge difference.
We tailor our world-renowned four-month program according to your growth stage and sector. Experts in a wide variety of fields will guide you..
We help you with your product strategy, growth metrics and investor pitches.
We give you access to 1,800+ founders, 200+ mentors and our own staff. Need an intro to a customer? Early access to a new product feature? We have connections.
Companies receive an investment of $150,000 in return for a 6% stake. We charge $37,500 to participate, but the fees can be deducted from our investment.
