The UpWest Labs startup accelerator, based in Silicon Valley, is looking for Israeli startups to join its program.
As part of the accelerator, entrepreneurs participate in workshops which support them in the initial stages of starting their companies.
UpWest is a unique accelerator as it includes Israeli companies but takes place in California’s Silicon Valley.
Gil Ben-Artzy, the program’s founder, is in Israel these days to interview entrepreneurs interested in joining the program.
As part of the program, the entrepreneurs will move to the city of Palo Alto for three months, receive funding and an apartment and participate in workshops with experts from Silicon Valley,
including investors, entrepreneurs and Google and Facebook officials.
This is the sixth round of companies in this accelerator, and they have achieved quite a nice record: Most of the program’s graduates have raised $800,000 to $3 million so far.
Applications can be submitted on the company’s website until July 22.
