UpWest Labs

UpWest Labs was founded in January 2012 in Silicon Valley as the only accelerator program in the US serving Israeli entrepreneurs.

To date, the program has enabled over 70 Israeli entrepreneurs to build their product closer to their market, establish strong partnerships and create valuable product momentum. The accelerator provides a mentorship-based three month program, offering startups a small seed investment, essential resources, and access to a robust network of experts, customers and capital.

UpWest Labs allows Israeli teams to benefit from Silicon Valley business “know-how” and establish a first outpost in the US. Mentors at UpWest Labs include executives from leading US companies such as Google, Facebook, Dropbox, LinkedIn, as well as Israeli CEOs and leading angels and VCs.
