SU Startup Network

Continuing support for growing companies

The SU Startup Network is a unique membership providing startups access to carefully curated networks of domain experts, seasoned entrepreneurs and business leaders, investors, global Fortune 500 companies, and the media. Participating companies leverage exponential technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges.

Members of the SU Startup Network gain direct access to Singularity University’s faculty and experts, receive advice and mentorship from serial entrepreneurs and leaders, tap into a vast network of vetted funders, form partnerships with global Fortune 500 companies, amplify their media and PR presence, and are featured at Singularity University’s global events and programs.

Portfolio companies have raised more than $150M, are featured in leading media outlets around the world, and have formed partnerships with Google, GE, Cisco, Autodesk, UNICEF, World Health Organization, Lowe’s, Swiss Cargo, and more.

We’re looking for great companies that share our mission.

Apply

Companies best suited to apply to the SU Startup Network:

  • Are early-stage companies, but are further along in their development than those that would apply to our accelerator program 
  • Are typically post-seed in their financing stage, with early market traction 
  • Have seasoned entrepreneurs that want to join Labs without attending our accelerator 
  • Are for-profit or nonprofit technology ventures that are working to create meaningful impact on the world’s biggest problems 

“I come to SU, learn about the future, discuss the future with the people who know about it more than anyone else on the planet and then I go back to my team in Colorado and build that future. This is the power of the SU Labs network – knowing about the future before it happens.”

– Dmitriy Tseliakhovich, Ph.D.
