What's brewing

Silicon Valley Accelerator

Our Silicon Valley Accelerator empowers founders from all over the world to build their startups in the best startup eco-system, with access to the best advisors, investors and skills to scale globally.

Local Accelerators

We are launching local Accelerators with local partners across the globe, and we partner closely with other Accelerators in the regions were we do not have our own presence.

We just launched our Seoul, Korea accelerator, and we recently launched our South East Asia hub in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and plan to expand with more local hubs across the region during 2014.

Corporate Innovation

We work with some of the top corporations in the world to give them access to innovation discovery, vetting and the ability to interact with startups in a way that is greatly beneficial for both parties through our Vertical-Sponsored Acceleration Programs, contact us for more information.

About BootstrapLabs

Elevator pitch

BootstrapLabs is a Silicon Valley based Technology Startup Accelerator tailored for foreign startups to connect and relocate permanently to Silicon Valley.

We employ a very hands on and entrepreneurial approach to support and advise startup entrepreneurs, help them execute to the best of their ability and tap into the benefits of Silicon Valley.

We have startups from 40 countries applying to join our Global Accelerator Program in Silicon Valley, and some are applying to join our Local Accelerator Program in South East Asia.

Our story

Since 2009, BootstrapLabs has helped foreign born startups such as Prezi, Witsbits, AudioDraft and Zerply to connect and relocate to the Silicon Valley eco-system, while maintaining their roots in their home countries, often hiring more people there. Today these startups are valued at $250M+, employ 200+ people and raised over $20M from Angels and VCs in Silicon Valley.

How are we different?


We select a few number of startups from the thousands we screen each year; we do not have fixed enrollment or cut-off dates; we pick the right team, at the right time chasing the right opportunity. Working with fewer companies allows us to provide deeper engagement, and increase the success-rate for our companies.


We believe early stage companies in general, and especially those relocating into Silicon Valley from other eco-systems, need a lot of attention and guidance so we always work closely with our teams, sit down physically or virtually every week and track progress against clear value creation milestones. We always work hard to help our founders tackle the hardest problems, create focus and priority on what moves them to the next level.

True Bootstrappers

We truly believe that small is beautiful, and true to our name we believe a startup should be small and nimble and can make a lot of progress quickly in achieving Product Market Fit and validation with very little resources, by keeping the right focus and priorities. Our motto is: Lean and mean while you figure it out and quickly scale with more resources once you do.
