SIX MONTHS ACCELERATION TO BOOST YOU AND YOUR STARTUP
SLP is the first not-for-profit education program for entrepreneurs. We take no equity but we have a clear and simple mission. We believe that the very best entrepreneurs are among the world’s great problem solvers and forces for positive change. In return for helping you, we ask that at the end of the program you commit to use your talent, wealth or resources to help those not as fortunate and able to help themselves. SLP fellows can be a positive change.
We are supported by fellows, amazing sponsors and mentors all of whom, have freely and enthusiastically provided input and support as speakers, judges, panelists and friends. Many of our returning fellows have founded breakthrough and award winning startups like Network Locum, SoPost, Mangahigh, MyBnk, Aire, NatureBox, Runkeeper, Savored, Rock My Run, Shareaholic and Ubsersense.
We expect significant involvement from all successful candidates. This is a very hands on program, designed to encourage your entrepreneurial approach. Fellows will co-construct and co-organise the program during the six months of education and across all 18 classes, workshops, simulations and study groups. We call on fellows to actively participate in the development and growth of the community.
Founded in Boston back in 2006 by Anupendra Sharma, the program began with seven fellows and has now educated over 2,700 entrepreneurs in 13 countries. So far we are proud to count over 600 women in our network. Fellows have started over 1,700 companies raising more than $550M from the world’s leading investors and accelerators. This year we anticipate admitting a global cohort of around 500. Each fellow has access to this global, multi-cultural network and can easily gather intelligence, make new partnerships or network with peers.
The program focuses on you, the entrepreneur, rather than your startup. Our fellows are members for life whatever their startups take them.
SLP is open to all but we are selective looking for leadership, calibre, openness and ability to contribute to our community. We want to put the best class together in each city so fellows benefit from diverse experiences and backgrounds. The class environment and culture of our network are really important as fellows regularly share experiences and challenges in an open and supportive environment.
