StartOut Growth Lab is a startup accelerator that offers top quality mentoring, education, and networking opportunities for companies that happen to be founded or co-founded by LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs.
Since our founding, the 66 graduated companies have raised $763M in funding and created over 3,650+ new jobs. Those numbers are a testament to the quality of entrepreneurs we accept and the extent of the resources we offer to them. We are making a real impact promoting diversity within startup communities across the nation.
StartOut Growth Lab (“SGL”) hosts a new virtual cohort of early-stage companies every six months. Up to ten companies are selected for each cohort. Think your company has what it takes?
Applications for Cohort 13 will open in November 2023.
