I previously wrote about StartX, a startup accelerator program that was created by some fellow Stanford students. It turns out they are now accepting applications for their upcoming class this Summer. If you’re an entrepreneur and attend Stanford or one of your teammates attend Stanford, check them out. They had many applicants for their Spring session and are now opening their Summer session to all those who wish to apply.

Why apply to StartX?

The program provides:

  • A diverse community of 150+ high quality founders in all industries and from all backgrounds
  • Top tier mentorship from experienced entrepreneurs & investors
  • Immediate access to expert training in every aspect of starting a company, for companies in any field (medical, clean-tech, software, etc.)
  • Living stipends, office space, free legal, free cloud computing, and more!
  • They take 0% equity.

Your team is eligible if at least one of the founders has been enrolled in one of the previous six quarters at Stanford. Past founders have included undergrads, graduate students, PhDs, postdocs, business school students, med school students, law students, etc.

You can also check out recent mentions of StartX on TechCrunch and in Forbes, and read articles about many of their companies, including Lark, Carbon Lighthouse, GameClosure, MotionMath, and Mindsumo.
