Our Mission & Impact

StartX is an educational non-profit community that develops Stanford's top entrepreneurs through experiential education and collective intelligence. StartX requires no fees and takes zero equity from its startups. StartX's startups have a 92% survival+acquisition rate after 10 years, raise an average of $11M and are 2.6× more successful at reaching a $100M valuation than the best accelerators. Best of all, the StartX model nurtures entrepreneurs to support each other and represents a critical mass of startup founders who care about collaborating with others, sharing their insights with the next generation, and supporting a non-profit community to help make that happen.
