The one and only mentorship-driven seed stage accelerator program in China.

Chinaccelerator is a 90-day mentorship-driven seed stage investment accelerator program that runs twice a year. Although companies do receive $30,000 in seed funding, there is tremendously more under the hood that comes with the program. Founders also get great perks such as a great place to work, three months of intensive top-notch mentorship, and the chance to pitch to angel investors and venture capitalists at the end of the program. Our new MD, William Bao Bean, is now on board to focus on one thing, and that’s getting you up to speed and funded. There is immeasurable value in the mentorship-driven connections and advice that you’ll receive when you kickstart your company through Chinaccelerator. When the program concludes, being part of the family does not. The supportive network of Chinaccelerator alumni, mentors, and investors is unrivaled not only in China but also in Europe and the USA. The opportunity to pitch to angel investors and venture capitalists at the end of the program is provided during our Investor and Demo Day. Historically, Chinaccelerator companies go on to average more than $1.5M raised in outside capital after the program.
