A seed stage accelerator is a startup accelerator that provides resources and mentorship to early-stage startups. Seed stage accelerators typically invest a small amount of money in exchange for a small equity stake in the company.
Seed stage accelerators can provide a number of resources to help startups get off the ground, including office space, mentorship, and access to a network of investors. Many accelerators also offer a cohort-based program, which gives startups the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with other early-stage companies.
There are a number of well-known seed stage accelerators, including Y Combinator, Techstars, and500 Startups.
