BootUP’s acceleration programs are the core of what makes BootUP unique and the best ecosystem in Silicon Valley.
Startup Accelerator
BootUP’s startup acceleration programs serve as the Silicon Valley “landing-pad” for startups that have already have achieved some traction and that are now looking to scale operations and seek additional funding. There are three types of startup acceleration programs at BootUP
Customized Accelerator
The flagship is BootUP’s two-year customized acceleration program for selected startup companies. This is a high-touch approach, typically with 5-10 mentors bringing different expertise along a startup’s growth journey. Depending on maturity, startups can enter the customized accelerator immediately or following participation in either a general or vertical acceleration program.
General Accelerator
BootUP’s general accelerator is a 3-month program providing Silicon Valley access to promising startups from around the world. The program includes educational sessions, hands-on mentoring, site visits and multiple Demo Days to institutional and angel investors.
Vertical Accelerator
BootUP’s vertical accelerators are usually launched together with one or more corporate partners with expertise within a specific vertical. The length varies by program but is sometimes longer than the General Accelerator in case of proof-ofconcept integration with the sponsoring corporate partner.
