500 Startups Seed Accelerator
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:
- Community: Starting a company is solitary. Working with your peers who are going through the same challenges makes a huge difference.
- Curriculum: 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..
- Hands-on Support: We help you with your product strategy, growth metrics and investor pitches.
- Network: 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.
- Money: 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.
What’s the deal? We invest $150k in exchange for 6%. We charge a $37.5k fee for participation in the 500 Seed Program.
