SOSV Accelerator Programs

Accelerating over 150 startups per year

Our accelerator programs take small-team startups and support them with funding, mentoring, and training for a set period in exchange for equity.

Startups are accepted in batches, and applications are open to anyone. The programs are popular and highly competitive, with acceptance rates running below 5%, and in some cases, well below.

During a 2-4 month period, the startups will receive intensive mentoring and training, and are expected to iterate rapidly on their business. The startups all share a common workspace, and receive immediate peer support and extensive feedback.

At the end of each program we organize a Demo Day where the startups present to investors and key influencers.

The value of the accelerator programs comes from the mentoring, connections, and recognition of being chosen to participate. Our business model is focused on generating venture-style returns – not rent or fees for services.

We have rockets taking off every quarter. Hop in and grab some rocket fuel!
