What is Deal Day?

Every year we see hundreds of amazing entrepreneurs and world-changing technologies, and while we can only fund 15-20 ourselves, we are thinking creatively about new ways to help you grow your company. We want to accelerate your path to revenue with our Global Partners — and we’ll be incentivizing action with $10k awards to the first four startups that reach commercial agreements at (or following) Deal Day. Think of it as speed-dating in search of ink on paper.

To be eligible — fill out this 5-minute short form to apply to our program, and we’ll contact you in late April if you’ve been selected for Deal Day. All companies that apply to our program between today and April 12 will be considered for this opportunity, not just the ones that we ultimately select for our 8th cohort.

How will companies be selected for Deal Day?

After you apply to our program, our Global Partners will vote on their top applicants, and we will invite the top contenders to Deal Day in San Francisco on May 14. In most cases, our partners are searching for the same solutions that we target for our program within the energy, mobility, agriculture, water, smart cities, and circular economy sectors. But not always, and Deal Day is designed to create commercial opportunities beyond our accelerator program. Our partners are seeking disruptive innovations, so even if your technology doesn’t fit within their current business model, we encourage you to throw your hat in the ring.
