Application deadline extended for Sputnik ATX accelerator program
Shared by GrowthChannel.io · 152d ago · 13 comments

Hi everyone! Last year we had a great experience at Sputnik ATX startup accelerator, with funding, great introductions, PR, and mentorship.

The applications for the next cohort got extended, and they're looking for next unicorns to join the accelerator program.

All you need to do is submit your application by July 3rd for 100K+ funding, 13 weeks of intensive curriculum focused on how to sell, gain traction, and more.

$100k at the start + up to $400k option if you show growth. they also often re-invest in the following rounds too

How much equity usually asks for $400k?

that will depend on your valuation, growth, and other investors in the round

If selected, you will be required to reside in Austin, TX for the duration of the program.

I was hoping for a remote one :) but thanks for sharing!

Yes, they prefer if you plan to be based in Austin. But at the same time, there are many companies in their most recent cohorts that haven't made it to Texas, and some even to US, yet. So if you're open for expanding into the US, still a good opportunity. And your tool is so cool, they will definitely be interested :)

With a name like Sputnik, I thought it would be in Russia.

Well, one of the partners is originally from Ukraine, but that doesn't have much impact on the accelerator operations. The accelerator is based and focused on Texas and the US, and is great if you're looking for funding, growth, and/or introductions to partners and investors. Their post-program support is amazing too :)

Can a startup in Africa join sputnik?

CribMD went through their accelerator (Nigeria) and got seed funding already at the demo day! In my cohort we also had a startup from Bangladesh. If you're abroad now, it's fine as long as you're open for relocating and moving your startup to Texas.
