Over the two weeks, program participants refine their investment theses and frameworks with insightful feedback from 500 Startups partners, Stanford faculty, and their peers.
They screen real startup pitches at our investor-only Demo Day and assess startup deals together. They dive into the dynamics of fundraising as well as the legal and financial aspects of deal-making.
Surprisingly for many, the relationships formed with the other participants often end up being the most valuable element of the program long after it finishes.
Our 100+ alumni have started funds together, shared and co-invested in deals, and serve as LPs in each other’s funds.
