Eligibility: It accepts applications from companies at various stages — some will have just a new idea on a piece of a napkin while others will have a company that is already generating millions in annual revenue and looking to accelerate its growth. Enterprise and B2B startups typically can be of the earlier stage while consumer product companies would require more proof of product-market fit. Experienced teams with domain experience attacking under-served markets will need a lot less traction to get the attention
Location: Los Angeles, the United States
MuckerLab Startup Accelerator 2020
MuckerLab is a mentorship-driven, pre-seed startup accelerator focused on working with a small number of exceptional technology entrepreneurs to help them launch and scale their businesses through collaborative ideation, productization, go-to-market, marketing, user acquisition, sales, legal guidance, and fundraising.
No three-month boot camps. No demo days. Just heads down company-building for one year — or however long it takes.
MuckerLab is not your typical accelerator program where hundreds of companies are “accelerated” each year using a cookie-cutter approach. It doesn’t churn through hundreds of startups every three months in order to help just a handful of top companies.
Instead, it works with ten to twelve companies per year, doing whatever is necessary — for as long as necessary — to ensure that each and every company achieves the operating milestones required for the next round of financing.
The hands-on, boutique approach has allowed us to achieve extraordinary success rates and founder satisfaction scores.
MuckerLab was ranked the number two accelerator in the country
Its bespoke model allows to deeply embed yourself as adjunct operating executives in companies at their earliest stages, as well as those going through major inflexion points, including:
- New Venture: MuckerLab Invests at the earliest stage of a company’s lifecycle — “pre-seed”, as the first institutional capital — and helps entrepreneurs validate and iterate on the original hypotheses of their core business concepts. In short, we help companies achieve product-market fit in preparation to raise institutional venture financing.
- Strategy Reboot: We help existing businesses revamp their strategies, increase their addressable market opportunities, and operationally focus on accelerating revenue growth to become a high-growth, venture-fundable businesses.
- Spin-Off: MuckerLab works with companies to spin off non-core divisions or assets to create operationally and strategically independent new ventures.
MuckerLab companies have raised over $5B to-date from some of the best investors in the world, including Accel Partners, Sequoia Capital, Bessemer Venture Partners, Matrix Partners, Andreessen Horowitz, Bullpen Capital, Felicis Ventures, First Round Capital, Floodgate Fund, Founders Fund, Greylock Partners, Kleiner Perkins, Lerer Ventures, NEA, Redpoint Ventures, and Spark Capital, among others.
