Envision believes in a world where anyone, regardless of their background, where they come from, or who they know, has access to a community of founders, investors, and operators to help bring their idea to life.
Final application deadline: September 19th.
Since our start in July 2020, we’ve accelerated 32 companies who have gone on to raise more than $15 million in VC funding from top-tier investors including Alexis Ohanian, Forerunner Ventures, CEOs of Doordash/Product Hunt/Loom/KAYAK, SoGal Ventures, and more. Others have gone on to participate in YCombinator, and Techstars, and 500 Startups, as well as become Thiel Fellows and make it onto the Forbes 30 Under 30 List. We've also given out more than $250k in non-dilutive funding to our founders.
Criteria for our program
👉🏿 At least 1 cofounder in school (undergrad or grad), you recently dropped out, or you recently graduated (1-4 years out of school)
👉🏾 At least 1 cofounder who identifies as a woman, nonbinary individual, BIPOC, or LGBTQ+ (we'd prefer 50% of the founding team to be underrepresented)
👉🏽 You're past the idea stage (you have a prototype or MVP, and have started to build out your team). You are working on a for-profit business (no non-profits).
👉🏼 You're committed to your venture and are passionate about what you're building
Envision does NOT take any equity in the startups that we accept. Our program has been sponsored by some of the most prominent firms in the industry including Soma Capital, Underscore VC, Breyer Capital, Contrary Capital, and more.
At Envision, we love what we do and always have too much fun with our founders. From Zoom happy hours to Among Us nights to our themed cohort all-hands and amazing workshops, we have a blast learning from each other and helping our companies grow while shaking up the VC and tech ecosystem ;)
