StartOut Growth Lab is the only 6-month accelerator program for LGBTQ entrepreneurs in the country. As an equity-free startup accelerator based in San Francisco, SGL offers top quality office space, mentoring, education, and networking opportunities for young companies that happen to be founded or co-founded by LGBTQ entrepreneurs.

SGL was founded in 2017 as a partnership between Nixon Peabody LLP and StartOut. In our first 3 cohorts, we have accelerated 20 LGBTQ founders, who raised over $20MM (and counting) and created 54 additional jobs. Now we’re searching for the next group of incredible founders who want to join the SGL!

Cohort 4 takes place from January to June 2019, in San Francisco, CA.

APPLICATIONS CLOSE ON NOVEMBER 11TH. For further information or questions, please reach out to Sarah Burgaud at
