Startup52 is an early stage diversity focused accelerator based in NYC, focused on discovering and grooming outstanding talent, in startup entrepreneurship and tech development, especially entrepreneurs from untapped and under-tapped communities (People of Color, women, LGBTQ, entrepreneurs from emerging markets, veterans, etc).
Startup52 is the first diversity-focused Accelerator in NYC. Well documented research has shown that diversity is profitable, successful and drives innovation. For this, we look forward to working with diverse teams to drive traction and increase success rates.
Ideally, we like 2 to 4 founding member-teams. However, we will also consider solo or non-diverse teams who are open to working with us to build diverse teams around their ventures.
However, all applications will be considered. Do your best to answer as many questions as are relevant to your venture. Remember that the more comprehensive your application is, the greater the likelihood of being shortlisted for review.
