Zone Startups is a global accelerator for startups with strong teams and a vision to become fast-growing market leaders.
We provide hands-on strategic and tactical guidance for startups looking to drive market validation and customer acquisition, as well as access to investors, corporate partners, and advisors.
We offer an “Innovation for Hire” consulting practice that lets corporate clients explore and embrace new ideas and technologies alongside leading-edge startups. For high-potential startups, we can provide seed capital and support for future financing efforts.
