Startup Next, a Techstars program, is the #1 startup pre-acceleration program in the world.
The program is designed in such a way that founders are able to continue building their product, since it's a part time program, that consists of 3-hour weekly sessions for 6 weeks. The program is free of charge and no equity is taken.
Even though Startup Next is part of Techstars, it’s not exclusively preparing startups for Techstars accelerator programs. Over time we have built a strong network of accelerators and investors worldwide and work closely with them to refer our accelerator/investor-ready alumni.
Startup Next has helped more than 50 startups get into top accelerators and raise more than $40 million dollars in funding. See our success stories and case studies.
Check out the program overview to learn more, and read FAQs to understand whether Startup Next is a good fit for your startup. Feel free to reach out to email@example.com with other questions.
