Your startup’s funding

Your funding determines your eligibility for the Start and Scale program tiers. We may reach out with a few follow up questions, or contact your investor to verify their investment.

What level of startup equity funding1 do you have?
1. Startup Equity Funding includes typical equity investment vehicles that support startup growth from accredited angel investors, Accelerator, Incubators, and Venture Capital firms. Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE) Agreements and convertible notes are accepted. To support the Web3 community, we will also be accepting verifiable token raises and blockchain foundation grants. Funding via Private Equity, government innovation grants, prize funding, crowdfunding, friends & family funding will not qualify a startup for Scale but will be evaluated for enrollment in Start.
