How are we different?

Blackbox is rethinking the traditional accelerator model. That model is largely focused on creating a pipeline for investors, an approach which makes existing economic hubs stronger, but doesn’t do enough to address inequality of entrepreneurial opportunity or to strengthen emerging startup ecosystems around the world. While connecting startup talent to venture capital is important in the short-term, an entrepreneur’s long-term success requires more. The Blackbox model is designed to be entrepreneur-first at every step, working to create a strong foundation under the founder which elevates their long-term potential, expands their worldview, exposes them to new opportunities, and connects them to their own greatness.
