What are we looking for in startups?

Chinaccelerator focuses on the internet sector, but we are industry agnostic. Our investment areas include but are not limited to, e-commerce, fintech, data marketing, edtech, healthcare, and entertainment. We tend to invest during the Angel/Seed round or Pre-A round, with fewer investments in Series A and later stages. 

We believe in data and real market feedback, so we require a viable product with a certain number of users and clients to apply for our program.  

A big focus of our selection process is the team behind the company. Anyone can find a problem. Other entrepreneurs are probably working on the same solution as you. But not every team has the capability to effectively implement a solution. We expect that founders should respect the importance of the process and not only focus on results. We look for people who will not be discouraged when faced with challenges but perceive them as valuable experiences.

In short, we are looking not only for the best solutions but also for the best entrepreneurs. 

我们青睐什么样的初创公司?

我们收到的申请者提问中,一个必问的问题是中国加速投资什么领域和阶段?中国加速专注于互联网领域,投资包括电子商务、金融科技、数据营销、教育科技、健康医疗、文娱消费等在内的所有“互联网+”行业。

就投资阶段而言,中国加速往往较早进入,一般是天使轮/种子轮Pre-A,少数投资A轮及以后的公司。但是投资早期并不意味着不需要有产品。从投资的角度,我们相信数据和市场检验,因此申请的前提条件是需要有成型产品和一定数量的用户或客户

我们同样重视团队背景。团队是否具备有效执行方案的能力,是否具有足够的行业经验、人际关系以及技术,或创始人是否能够高效管理团队等,都将成为决定性因素。

我们希望创始人们尊重和理解“过程”的重要性,而不急于寻求一个结果,理解从过程中不断进步和学习的重要性,遇到挑战和挫败不会气馁,而是将其视为一次历练和经验。寻找和培养优质的创业者也是我们的目标之一。

What do we offer?

We offer US$150,000 investment and a 3+3 month program to provide you with knowledge, connections and resources you are in need of. 

Your entire team needs to be in Shanghai for the full duration of the program. It’s the best way for our team and mentor network to help you during this critical period of growth, and for you to access all of the advantages that Chinaccelerator provides.

Learn about the full offerings of the Chinaccelerator program here.

作为创始人,你和你的公司能获得什么?

我们将向贵公司投资15万美金。投资后,你将参与我们提供的3+3个月的加速项目,获得更为结构化和定制化的支持,比如创业知识、商业联系以及各种你所需的资源。

你的团队需要入驻中国加速位于上海的办公空间。这是中国加速团队和创业导师们能帮助你的最佳方式,我们将带领你经历增长的关键时期。

Application Deadline

The deadline for Batch 19 is 23:59, February 2nd, 2020 (GMT+8). The number of investments in each batch is limited. Therefore, the sooner you apply, the more time we have to review, and the more likely we will appreciate the value of your project. Applications received after the deadline will automatically be considered for the next batch (i.e. Batch 20). 

If you do not intend to apply for Batch 19, please mark that you are interested in participating in Batch 19 (or others) on the application form.

The application for the next Batch will be opened immediately after the current program starts, and the new application deadline will be updated on the website.

申请截止日期

最新一期第19期项目申请的截止日期为北京时间2021年2月2日。每期投资数量有限,越早申请,越具优势。超过截止日期申请的项目将被自动视为下下期项目(即第20期)的申请者。

若你并不打算申请第19期项目,也可提交申请资料。只需标明有意向参与第19期或往后即可。

3月项目开始后,下一期项目的申请通道将立即开放,截止日期将实时更新于网站。

Application Process

If your company passes the first round of screening, we will contact you for further interviews and meetings and move to the decision stage. 

Chinaccelerator accepts 2 batches every year, with 10-15 investments per batch. The acceptance rate is less than 2%!

We will not accept you if we feel that our investment and accelerator program are not the best fit for your company at the current stage. However, we do encourage you to stay within our community and participate in our events.

Try answering these questions to determine if you are ready for the program.

If you have any questions, please contact cateam@chinaccelerator.com, or add SOSV WeChat Helper (WeChat ID: sosvhero) on WeChat, and we will reply as soon as we can.

申请流程

如果你的项目通过第一轮筛选,我们将与你联系,进入第二轮面试和会议,逐渐进入审核和决定阶段。

中国加速每年接收2期项目,每期投资10-15家。每期筛选申请淘汰率超过98%

我们可能会拒绝你的申请,但这并不是因为贵公司不具潜力,而是因为我们的加速项目并不能在你当前所处的阶段给予你所需的帮助,但我们依旧非常欢迎你参与到我们的社群和活动中,与我们保持联络。

在申请之前,你还可以尝试回答这些问题,检验你是否已经准备好了!

任何问题,欢迎联系cateam@chinaccelerator.com,或添加SOSV WeChat Helper(WeChat ID: sosvhero)为微信好友,我们会尽快回复。
