Starta Global Residency Track is a program for startups with international roots which are seeking to expand to the U.S. We look for startups with a significant technology focus, in any sector, and the potential to have a global product. Most applicants already have a Minimum Viable Product and proven traction in their home country.
Our program is three long, and focuses on helping startups establish operations in the US and move forward on the path to attaining revenue and raising funds.
We have two cohorts per year, each comprised of up to 20 startups.
Participants in our program work directly with our partners and mentors, and will have access to our extensive network of investors. We have outstanding, expert mentors that focus on improving each startup's communications, business development, sales, marketing, and fundraising - providing both strategic and tactical advice which is tailored to the U.S. business environment.
Participation in the Global Residency Track will have flexible terms for companies at pre-seed, seed, and early growth stages, operating on an advisory fee of 3-6% (calculated based on the stage of the company). Earlier stage companies looking to cover relocation costs will be eligible for initial cash investment.
Participants are required to be physically present at our co-working space in New York City for the first two months of the program.
What makes our program unique is our proven ability to ease the transition of international startups to the U.S., from the biggest issues to the smallest details - that is our core competency - as well as our extensive network of established business connections, which has taken our Partners years to cultivate. We treat our startups like family, both during and after the program.
Be aware that Starta Global Residency Track is an intense program that requires a very firm commitment from participants - but the results can be extremely rewarding. To date, over 100 startups have completed our accelerator program and they have gone on to raise over $90 million.
