Success isn't gender specific -- and opportunity shouldn't be either. Upstart is one of the nation’s leading accelerators for women-led tech startups. Our curriculum is designed to encourage rapid progress and achievement of milestones; while equipping female founders with the skills, confidence, and network to level the entrepreneurial playing field.

Who do we invest in?
- Teams led by women, but may have men as co-founders.
- Founders who are passionate, flexible, coachable, and execution oriented.
- Ideas with high-growth potential, and national or global reach.
- Websites, mobile apps, software, hardware and tech-driven solutions.
- Specifically, we don’t fund brick-and-mortar shops, non-profits, companies that require laboratories and FDA approval, restaurants, consultancies, or small service oriented companies.

Post-Acceleration: Incubation + Support:
Upstart culminates with a Demo Day during which all Start Co. accelerators across various verticals showcase their business...

Graduated startups join our strong network of alumni and continue to set milestones while receiving post-acceleration support for at least another 3 months.
