TechCode provides Incubation, Acceleration, Venture Funding and Strategic Consulting to companies all over the world.
Our Incubators provide startups with the space and access to the human capital that they need to build and sell their products. TechCode has established incubators in Silicon Valley, Boston, Seoul, Tel Aviv, Helsinki, Berlin, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing, and over 10 more cities.
Our Accelerator provides startups with the intellectual capital (programming, mentorship, subject matter expertise and supply chain resources) they need to commercialize their technologies.
Our Venture Funds provide startups with the financial capital that they need to scale up. TechCode currently has two active funds.
Our Strategy Consultants provide later-stage startups and big companies with actionable insights to make better decisions about cross-border innovation, e.g. market entry strategy, supply-chain partnership and open innovation initiatives.
Who should apply:
AI+ Startups should be solving problems and building products related to AI, internet of things, robotics, or transportation. We define AI+ as artificial intelligence reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, natural language processing, computer vision, robotics, mobility, transportation and movement, as well as virtual reality, augmented reality, voice recognition, device communication, gesture control and machine learning. Startups are encouraged to apply if they are early-stage with a prototype and some traction. Startups should also have an objective to scale and operate globally. This Accelerator is especially valuable for startups that have product-market fit and some traction in the US and are looking for a streamlined way to scale globally and into China.
Why should you apply:
There are three types of capital: financial, human and intellectual. TechCode can invest all three and helps startups build their product, streamline their supply chain, find and hire the right talent, syndicate and close financing rounds, strengthen their IP portfolio and gain access to a global distribution channel.
While we do not guarantee that we will invest financial capital in the accepted startups, some could receive an investment if they make it through our due diligence process. The Accelerator is unique in that it serves as a hands-on due diligence process for our venture fund.
If we invest at the end of our due diligence process, we invest at the same terms as any other investor.
When to apply:
Applications are open now through the end of March, 2018.
Where is the Accelerator located:
The Accelerator is co-located at our US HQ in Mountain View, CA, our TechCode Hub in Boston, MA, and Beijing, China. There will be several opportunities to travel to our China offices (we cover the cost of the travel) and learn more about operating (raising money, hiring talent, distribution channels, manufacturing, etc) outside of the US.
