Partner with us to open a Brinc accelerator in your local startup ecosystem and build a portfolio of deep tech investments.
We are looking to partner with successful business operators and leaders who have a strong network of startups, investors, and ecosystem players in major and emerging entrepreneurial hubs.
This is a unique opportunity to put your experience, network and skills to use while leveraging the Brinc brand and our proven methodology to spearhead the development of new accelerator programs and funds in your home market. Our accelerator programs will be used as vehicles to invest in a portfolio of technology companies while delivering tangible support and networks to accelerate their growth.
Brinc was founded in 2014 with a mission to invest in and support the world’s most ambitious founders around the world. We actively engage with startups that contribute positively to humankind and the planet.
We look for early-stage investment opportunities that have the potential to create sustainable long-term value, generate attractive financial returns and drive societal, environmental, and technological innovation.
Global Accelerator Programs
We run a global network of 15+ specialized accelerators designed to condense years worth of learning & access into a 3-month intensive program. Every year, more than 50 startups are admitted into our programs and receive seed funding and tailored support to help scale their businesses.
Our programs help founders develop new solutions, find product-market fit, secure investments, commercialize solutions, and expand to new markets.
To date, we have invested in over 250 startups through our global accelerator programs. Through the development of new accelerator programs in partnership with Brinc’s Location Heads (such as yourself), we have set an ambitious target to invest in 1,000 additional impact-driven companies over the next decade, furthering our efforts to support more entrepreneurs that are dedicated to solving the world’s toughest challenges and helping us build a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive future.
