Startup Next, a Techstars program, is the #1 startup pre-acceleration program in the world
Startup Next prepares startups for accelerators and seed investment, by providing high quality mentorship and leveraging a global network of investors, mentors and founders. The program 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.
Applications for Startup Next Toronto are open until October 5. Visit Startup Next Toronto to learn more about the program and apply.
Startup Next helps startups in three crucial ways:
The program is designed in such a way that founders are able to continue building their product, since it’s part time and 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 is organized in Toronto by TWG and MaRS. Startups are invited to join program Director Nathan Monk, Co-Director Holly Knowlman and Startup Next Toronto alumni at an infosession at MaRS on September 21 to find out more.
