How it works

We Help Ambitious Founders Shake-up Industries

The history of Startupbootcamp

Startupbootcamp was founded in 2010 in Copenhagen with the core idea of supporting the world’s best entrepreneurs as they grow their startups.

Soon other amazing entrepreneurs joined the Startupbootcamp network to create programs around Europe, and by 2012 there were 5 programs in the network. By 2014 Startupbootcamp has expanded to become the largest startup accelerator in Europe and one of the top 3 largest in the world, with programs on numerous continents and a network spanning hundreds of cities around the world.

Selection Days was a fantastic growing experience for me personally and the team. It helped us think about the things we could do differently, as well as encouraging us on the things we are doing well.

Before The Program

Each program is open for applications for 3 months. During this period, we host events all around the world to meet the most suitable early-stage founders suitable for that particular program, take part in industry conferences and meet those referred to us by our alumni, mentors, and partners.

Once applications close, we invite the top 20 startup companies to attend our program-specific a 3-day Selection Days, to meet our investment team, mentors, and corporate partners. At the end of the Selection Days, each program selects the top 8-11 teams to join the 3-month program.


During The Program

For three months, the selected startups collaborate with 400+ mentors, partners, and investors to scale their industry-changing technology businesses. In addition, the teams benefit from 15K in cash per team to cover living expenses during the program, free office space, more than €450K+ in exclusive partner deals from leading technology providers such as Google, Amazon, HubSpot, SendGrid, and others.

Each program culminates with Demo Day, a 1-day event with up to 1000 guests who join to support the startups as they continue to scale their businesses.


After The Program

We continue to work with our portfolio companies after they have completed the program. Within our Alumni Growth program, the founders take part in exclusive networking events, get access to deals, and receive tailored introductions.
