The SU LABS Startup Accelerator

Welcome to the first accelerator program built specifically for startups (both for- and non-profit) tackling humanity’s grand challenges by leveraging exponential technologies.

We built this program for people like you. People daring to solve at the systems level. People working on the cutting edge of technology and leveraging this technology to positively impact the world.

But don’t take our word for it – see and hear what our founders have to say:


The Program

In an intense hands-on 8-week experience on the Singularity University campus in the heart of Silicon Valley we will take startups from prototype or early proof-of-concept to scale. Starting with a one-week Exponential Thinking Bootcamp, we will guide you through four intense weeks of accelerated learning; covering topics ranging from future forecasting, rapid prototyping, business fundamentals to fundraising. This is followed by four weeks of time to integrate what you learned and build your product. The program will be capped off by our Demo Night event.

Our unique global educational position provides fertile grounds for startups to connect with leaders on business, leadership, product, and marketing development. We combine the best that SU has to offer, by giving you unparalleled access to an invested community made up of Fortune 500 companies in our overbooked Corporate Executive Program, thought leaders enrolled in our Google-sponsored Global Solutions Program, alumni in our international network hubs, and accomplished attendees of the X-Prize/SU/Deloitte joint effort, the Innovation Partnership Program.

We provide $100,000 in seed funding to give you runway throughout the program, a co-working space at NASA Research Park, a structured program offering and the best Singularity University has to offer for 7-10% equity in your company. For non-profits/501(c)(3) organizations we provide $50,000 in unrestricted grants. All with the goal to help you build products positively impacting humanity at scale.


The Goals

Network. Singularity University has a rich and diverse network of thought leaders, scientists, innovators, investors, entrepreneurs and faculty. Our number one goal is to network our companies with individuals that can make an impact in their business.

Accelerate. A well run company has clear milestones and metrics. Our job is to align with each company's key milestones and accelerate them.

Expand. The content within the SU walls broadens minds and teaches people how to think long-term, leverage exponentials, and build companies with potential to impact one billion people.
