One hundred days to get focused, get feedback, and get funded. We’ll give you enough money to pursue your software/internet startup full-time, co-working space, resources to work with, and continuous feedback on your progress from mentors who’ve done it before. Post-program, our mission is to help you get the funding and resources needed to scale and achieve a successful exit. Contact us to be a StartFast mentor, sponsor, investor or volunteer.

We’re not just another accelerator. StartFast welcomes applicants from all over the United States and around the world.  In addition to exceptional mentors and program leaders, we offer our teams:

  • Up to $18,000 in cash and over $100,000 in perks
  • Access to high quality, affordable talent;
  • Ability to achieve your goals not just faster, but with an ultra low burn rate;
  • Our successful track record of getting companies funded;
  • Support from an emerging, globally connected entrepreneurial community;

Best of all, there is no catch! Our funding is entirely from private sources and there is no post-program residency requirement to limit your options.
