The Pioneer Offer

We have a standard deal for Pioneers: 1% of your company. In exchange, you’ll receive:
  • Access to a network of elite founders.
  • A 2-month remote startup accelerator program. Our team, with help from our network of advisors, will mentor you on the basics of starting a business, fundraising, product-market fit, hiring and more.
  • Free Stripe Atlas company formation.
  • Mentorship from some of the world’s most successful individuals.
  • Participation in the Pioneer Demo Livestream, which may help you fundraise.
  • A free round-trip plane ticket (and help with associated logistics) to Silicon Valley.
  • $100,000 in AWS credits.
  • $1,000/month in GitHub Enterprise credits for 2 years
  • Up to $3,500/mo in Plaid credits for 6 months.

And a growing set of perks including Segment, Mixmax, Twilio and more.

If you become successful, you'll help us fund promising Pioneers in perpetuity.

Upon selection, we will help you to work out the best process for creating a US company (or US parent company) in which we can invest. If you already have an incorporated company, these investment terms still apply. All Pioneers are required to be incorporated as a United States C Corporation.

We don’t charge any other fees for the program. You are not obligated to accept this offer if you're a Pioneer Tournament winner.
