As one of the most successful companies to come out of the Techstars Program, SendGrid understands what it requires to take off as a startup, so we want to give back to the next generation of founders.
We’ll help maximize your growth potential with marketing and transactional email through SendGrid.
Our sage perspective, key introductions, and relevant tools will help you overcome your toughest obstacles.
SendGrid Accelerate is our new initiative designed to help startups succeed. We've been there ourselves and understand what it takes—the tools and resources startups need to really take off. We have a team dedicated to help your company succeed. Startups that are a part of our accelerate program get technical and business mentorship from our Community team, a healthy dose of SendGrid credits, top of the funnel marketing and anything else we can do to provide assistance. We are not an accelerator.
We've been one of the most successful companies out of Techstars and truly believe that the mentorship-driven accelerator model works, because it took us to the next level. This is our way to give back to the global startup community by helping the next generation of founders.
We have partnerships with over 200 accelerators and early stage VC funds in over 15 countries. The Accelerate team is globally distributed and works directly with founders, accelerators, and VC funds by hosting dedicated office hours and private workshops for their companies.
We believe that more than just providing free access to SendGrid, we can make a significant contribution to the growth of your startup. We can help with industry expertise, networking connections, and top-tier email technology. Companies like Airbnb, Uber, and Spotify use our technology on a daily basis to communicate with their users.
