General information


Amsterdam, Noord-Holland


We’re a global family of industry-focused accelerators. We support early-stage tech founders rapidly scale their companies by providing direct access to an international network of the most relevant mentors, partners, and investors in their industry.

Each of our programs has an industry focus which allows us to provide an unmatched level of support for the startups selected into our programs.

We were founded in 2010 in Copenhagen with a core mission of supporting the world’s best entrepreneurs through all stages of their growth. With deep European roots, soon other entrepreneurs joined the Startupbootcamp movement to expand our mission across Europe, Asia and Americas.

We now have more industry-focused accelerator programs than any other organization. With programs in major startup hubs including Amsterdam, London, New York, Singapore, Berlin, Mexico, Cape Town, Chengdu, Mumbai, and many others, we provide both a global reach and industry-focus to our portfolio companies.

By holding events in more than 100 cities each year we support the world’s most talented founders with hands-on mentorship and access to key industry connections, as well as take part in all the major technology and industry conferences around the globe.

We Empower Innovators through the growth initiatives for startups (Startupbootcamp), corporates  (Innoleaps) and young talent (The Talent Institute).

How to apply

The startups can apply by filling in the F6S form. The link to this form will be available via the Startupbootcamp website when the applications for the program are open.

During the applications period, each accelerator program runs an International FastTrack Tour. A FastTrack is a casual event where 10 startups invited present their ideas, get personalized mentor feedback, connect to some of the most influential mentors from the industry as well as fellow entrepreneurs, and get to know about our accelerator programs. For the list of our FastTrack events and cities, check our specific event page. Note: applying for the FastTrack event is not the same as applying for the program. If you would like to apply for the program as well as for the FastTrack, you will need to fill in the application form.
