The first startup accelerator listed on the stock exchange

In 2019, Startupbootcamp made history by listing its first Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) on the stock exchange, marking a pioneering move for startup accelerators globally. This achievement underscores our commitment to democratizing startup investments, breaking down the traditional barriers that have limited such opportunities to high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors.

By opening our doors to a broader audience, we're not just inviting investment; we're building a community of supporters eager to partake in the early-stage ventures that are shaping our future. This milestone is a testament to our belief that everyone should have the opportunity to invest in and support groundbreaking innovation, making it a significant leap towards realizing our mission.

Our Investment Philosophy

At Startupbootcamp, we're committed to investing in founders that are solving real problems for real people. We look for companies that are using technology to disrupt industries, create new markets, and improve people's lives. And we're particularly interested in startups that are addressing pressing global challenges like climate change, powering economies, and financial inclusion.

But we don't just invest in any startup that comes our way. We have a rigorous selection process that includes multiple rounds of interviews, pitch sessions, and due diligence. We only accept the most promising startups with the highest potential for success, and we work closely with them throughout our programs to ensure they have the best possible chance of achieving their goals.
