Starta Ventures launched Batch 10 on September 14th

Starta’s Global Residency is a 6-month accelerator program for international startups expanding their business into US markets. The program consists of two parts: three months of full-time coaching on-site in Starta’s New York office, and three months of online support. During their residency, participants will receive guidance from experienced consultants in a wide range of projects and activities. Top performing companies are eligible for a $200k-500k follow-up investment from Starta Ventures Fund II.
Due to the COVID-19, the Global Residency Program is now offering a hybrid model with flexible opportunities for offline participation.
Starta’s Accelerator was launched in 2015. Since then, its founders have established business operations in the US, and laid out a strong foundation for global penetration. They can test, validate the market, and gain investor interest.
Starta’s global residency accelerator provides cultural and business adaptation services for startups entering the North American market, as well as their integration into the international investment ecosystem. American VCs and business angels visit fireside chats at Starta headquarters and get introduced to our startups. The terms for participation in the program are individual and depend on the stage of the Startup development. Investments range from $100k — $120k, including the cost of the program, in exchange for 3–6% equity.
Seed stage startups are invited to participate in our pre-acceleration program. The goal is to track the dynamics of key indicators and provide founders with consultation support from our Starta Partners. Based on the outcome, startups could be considered for a Global Residency Track program.
Starta Ventures has helped dozens of startups from around the world break into US markets. “Our many years of experience helps us consistently identify effective methods for launching and sustaining new businesses,” commented Alexey Girin, a General Partner at Starta Ventures. “The accelerator team is critical to this operation. By providing founders with support, and connecting them with a wide network of American contacts, we help startups take their first steps in US markets with fewer risks, and higher certainty.”
