This is pretty unbelievable for the Starta team, but here we go again, opening applications for the seventh time.
Started in 2015, we now have significant experience bringing startups to an international market. In total, we have brought over 80 startups from Europe and helped them successfully establish and thrive in the US market.
Our portfolio companies have also raised new rounds: E-Contenta, Сindicator, Anryze, Navigine, GeoCV, SendPulse, Agrieye, Snovio, FriendlyData, Cardiomo, HoverSurf, etc.
Starta Ventures is also proud to announce that it is the proud recipient of the 2018 Volga Angels Summit’s Early Stage Fund of the Year award.
2016 we opened a great open space for our portfolio companies to utilize here in Manhattan, New York. This space should provide plenty of comfort for an amazing workspace, while also giving them a place to take part in events and network. In this space, there is also a Pitch Contest and Happy Hour each Thursday at Sputnik Space (220 East 23rd Street, Suite 500), so feel free to join us!
Our portfolio geography is expanding!
We are increasing our portfolio companies geographically from batch to batch. Batch 6 includes companies from Estonia, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Slovakia, Moldova, and Russia. Diversity is one of our strong points.
The Starta Accelerator program lasts for 3.5 months. During this time, participants build and solidify the necessary practical skills for running a business, acquire invaluable business contacts, and develop an understands of their target markets.
The program offers a global “big picture” approach combined with expertise from local industry leaders. Our program shows participants how to effectively avoid the pitfalls of expanding to a new market while still maintaining their vision.
