The best founders don't need accelerators

StartX is not an accelerator. It is a non-profit community associated with Stanford University. 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. We help our companies hire elite talent, secure funding, and tap into one of the most powerful and innovative networks in the world: the Stanford University Alumni Network and other StartX Founders.

Our companies have a combined valuation of over $19B
