About Startmate

We accelerate the most ambitious founders, operators and investors through our programs, propelled by a highly-trusted mentor-driven community, and backed by the best angels, venture funds and tech startups in the region.

Over the past decade we have invested in 230+ startups, with a collective portfolio value of over $2 billion.

We pride ourselves on believing in founders before they believe in themselves. 

Startmate launches over 1,000 Startmate Fellows every year. As our community grows both in size and value, so does our ability to scalably unearth more ambitious founders at the beginning. It’s a virtuous cycle. One that will allow us to continue outperforming for the decade ahead.
