Startup Next is the #1 startup pre-accelerator in the world

Our program has helped graduates get accepted into Techstars, 500 Startups, Imagine K12, AlphaLab and many other top accelerators. If you are looking to apply for and get accepted into an accelerator, we can help. Startup Next will get your team focused on the progress needed to stand out from others applying through our framework of top-quality mentorship, content, and referrals to accelerators or investors.

During Startup Next, you will:

  • Test your startup idea and team
  • Get weekly hands-on mentorship & pitch coaching
  • Be held accountable and pushed to focus on important growth metrics
  • Grow your network of startup experts and other founders
Startup Next is an intense mentorship program consisting of 3 hour weekly (once a week) sessions for five weeks. Teams are expected to hustle outside the sessions and complete a small set of reporting deliverables each week in preparation for the mentorship.What happens after the program finishes?
Following the program, Startup Next teams that have demonstrated their readiness and progress will have access to a number of value-added resources from the Startup Next global team.The value-adds for alumni will be:
