500 Corporate Innovation
Since 2010, 500 Startups has been differentiated by our dedication to discovering and backing the world’s most talented entrepreneurs. We invest in and run entrepreneur mentorship and growth programs around the world, fostering an international community of startups in over 60 countries ranging from seed stage companies in our accelerators to 10 later stage unicorns valued at over $1 billion.
Recognizing that the most admired corporations are increasingly partners to startups, we’ve begun to bridge this gap by working with corporations directly. Our Corporate Innovation team works with established companies, by building capacity to carry out pilots, advising on strategy, and connecting corporations with relevant startups in their verticals and geographies.
