Startup Next, a Techstars program, is the #1 pre-acceleration program

Startup Next Cyber Security, presented by Booz Allen Hamilton, is a startup pre-accelerator for startups in the cybersecurity industry.

Companies creating cyber security related startups, will gain hands-on mentorship and education during the program, culminating in a Demo Day event. Booz Allen Hamilton will provide expertise and mentorship to program participants in conjunction with leaders from the DC startup ecosystem. 

This is a non-resident, part-time program, so founders are able to stay focused on their business and product, while getting invaluable help from the mentors to get better prepared for an accelerator or a seed round. 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. Startup Next has helped more than 50 startups get into various top accelerators and raise more than $50 million dollars in funding. See our success stories and case studies.
