A short list of the best Bay Area startup accelerators.

Some are focused on specific verticals (such as Boost VC, a program specifically for VR/AR and Bitcoin startups). When you join an accelerator program, you’ll usually receive a seed investment ranging from US$20,000 to US$50,000 in exchange for equity.


Each cohort-based program can run between three to five months; you will receive mentorship and education to grow and
accelerate your business. Accelerator programs usually conclude with a public pitch event or demo day.
