Startup Next, the global pre-acceleration program backed by Techstars and Google for Entrepreneurs, is back in Toronto for a second round.
The program, which helps startups prepare for an accelerator or investment, gives participants access to the high-impact mentorship, best practice tools and resources, plus the opportunity to gain access to capital. This year, Startup Next has already helped more than 20 startups around the world get into top accelerators, including Techstars and 500 Startups. Eight more startups have collectively raised $6.7M for their initial seed rounds.
Good luck to all of the teams in this cohort. We can’t wait to see your progress over the next few weeks!
