Silicon Valley global seed-stage accelerator focused on helping non-US startups. Custom tailored acceleration programs provide intensive individual support to highly selected startups from all around the globe. No batches, no application deadlines, just continous support.

Blackbox was founded in 2010 by Fadi Bishara.

Fadi has in-depth knowledge and experience related to building successful startups in Silicon Valley and elsewhere in the world. For over 17 years, he has been successfully matching human capital and venture capital needs around the globe, guiding talented technology entrepreneurs along their path. Having first-hand experience in building teams for over 100 early stage startups, he’s a frequent speaker and an advisor/mentor for many global startup accelerators.

A few times a year Blackbox runs Blackbox Connect – an intense two-week Silicon Valley immersion program. Connect is accessible for free to all the companies in the accelerator’s portfolio, but also to non-US based startups that seek to get an intensive accelerated experience of Silicon Valley’s culture of entrepreneurship.

Class February 2013 begins on February 18th and is still open for applications. For non-portfolio participants, program fees apply (with scholarships sponsored by Blackbox Investor Club available). Apply here >>

International companies in Blackbox portfolio: M.dot, Wappwolf, Empreware.com, Fido Intelligence, Mykoob.
