The SEED Program in San Francisco
for INTERNATIONAL STARTUPS
In cooperation with MTS Fund (a Silicon Valley seed fund), we run ad-hoc acceleration sessions for startups with an international soul. We scout the best startups internationally, help them grow with mentoring and seed funding.
3-LEVEL Selection process
Twice a year, we meet hundreds of startups, select the very best, invite them to a 2-day retreat in an awesome location. From there, we select 5-10 startups, invite them to attend one session of our 3-week Startup School. After having seen how you act and re-act in Silicon Valley for 3 week, we retain the option to invite you to an ad-hoc 3-6 months acceleration program while our partner, MTS Fund, will provide seed funding.
We look for
- A-teams (no solos) of international founders, preferably with development team based in mediterranean area, focused on US market.
- Disruptive technologies in mobile, big data, digital publishing, educational platforms, design, fashion, payments. There is an MVP, 1+ customers and a proof of concept. You are ready to scale.
Mentored to grow
We help startups grow by giving them access to a network of outstanding mentors.
