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

Batch 8 application is open. Apply now!

Twice a year, we handpick a small number of promising startups and invite them to join our accelerator program in return for 6% equity. We then invest $30,000 USD and offer the option of an additional $25,000 USD from the Chinaccelerator Pool, via convertible note, that can bring our total cash on offer to $55,000 USD per company.  Bottom line: the program plus $30,000 USD for ~7% or the program plus $55,000 for ~8%, converting at next round’s valuation.

The startups move to Shanghai for 3 months, during which we work intensively to help build out their China product/market fit, local team and growth strategies, closing out the program with a focus on financial modeling and refining the pitch to investors. Each cycle culminates in a Demo Day, where the startups present their companies to a carefully curated, invite-only audience. Then our team gets to work getting you funded, which means not only finding and encouraging investors (including ourselves), but also closing them!

But Chinaccelerator doesn’t end on Demo Day; the startups are encourage to work from the Chinaccelerator offices rent free until the start of the next program and to continue to take advantage of all our resources. We have a vibrant alumni network who contribute to and share in the resources of the program wherever they go, capstoned by our annual SOSV Skydive event that brings together our 300 portfolio companies, 500 mentors, all of our friends and co-investors, and of course the SOSV team of 57 people from around the world.
