Creative Startups launched in Albuquerque in 2014 and is hosting its 4th cohort in 2017. This program continues to improve year to year as we learn from our companies what they need most while growing their startup. 

All Creative Startups Accelerator locations have the same high quality education designed by Stanford educators. The main difference is location and dates. The Albuquerque and Winston-Salem sites are open to startups worldwide and the classes are held online with a Deep Dive being held in-person in that location. The Kuwait Accelerator will be hosted in-person and thus startups must either be able to commute or relocate to Kuwait City. 

This intensive 8-week virtual program is open to all startups regardless of location. During the first 7 weeks, startups will critically analyze their business models and receive tools and training to combat tough situations. The final week all startups, mentors, and investors will travel to Albuquerque, NM to work together and network during the Deep Dive. This week ends with a pitch competition where the top three startups split a pool of $50,000 in seed stage investment.
