Startup Minds

Startup Minds is a new kind of seed fund and startup accelerator. We have our own in-office startups, so we actually practice what we preach. We know startups are most productive when they can spend their time developing their own ideas, and therefore we don’t have a strict class-and-curriculum approach. Schedule a meeting with us to see our beautiful office anytime: tell us whether your idea needs $30k in seed funding or $200k, and tap our in-house devs, UX designers, CFO, marketing experts, or QA product gurus on the shoulder if you need a second opinion, want to know the tax consequences of setting up an employee pool for your startup, or want to grab a drink after work.

Why are we so flexible? Not (only) because we’re super nice people. We understand that, these days it’s easier than ever to start a company, and the balance of power has largely shifted from investors to hackers. We believe in empowering, not controlling.

And we have a compelling track record of success.
