Startupbootcamp is a network of industry-focused startup accelerators. It was founded in 2010 and now operates globally with 20+ industry-focused programs in key locations including San Francisco, Amsterdam, Cape Town, Chengdu, Berlin, Dubai, Hartford, Istanbul, Rome, London, Melbourne, Miami, Mumbai, Mexico City, New York, and Singapore.
In light of the events of 2020, it has become clearer than ever that our global society is in need of a more sustainable approach towards energy, food consumption, and financial equality. At Startupbootcamp we take this, our influence, and our Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously. For this reason, we aim to accelerate this sustainable transition to the best of our capabilities.
After having invested in many sustainability-driven startups over the last 10 years, we have experienced the great social and financial impact that these upcoming organizations have on the market from up close. Because of this, after successfully launching the first-ever Accelerator IPO for our Fintech Program in 2019, we have decided to launch a new IPO for a program aimed at startups and scaleups that will help accelerate several of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
For the Sustainability program, Startupbootcamp will yearly accelerate 10 high potential startups and scale-ups in respectively 2021, 2022, and 2023. The program is part of a bigger endeavor where, together with our partners and investors, we’ll further build and stimulate a collaborative, sustainable innovation ecosystem in Europe.
