The best founders don't need accelerators

StartX is not an accelerator. You don't have a time limit, you don't give up equity, and it's not a boot camp with mandatory events.

StartX is a collection of serial entrepreneurs, industry experts, tenured Stanford professors, and well-funded growth-stage startups. We believe that entrepreneurs can achieve more as a group, than we can as individuals. As a community, our goal is to find creative ways to collaborate, so that each of our entrepreneurs has the largest possible long-term positive impact on the world that it can.

To achieve this, we designed the StartX Community: a community for founders who don't need to give up equity.
