ABOUT US

SparkLabs Cyber + Blockchain accelerator is located in Washington D.C., which is one of the world's top cybersecurity ecosystems. Along with D.C.'s strengths, SparkLabs is bringing its global network and experience of investing in over 200 startups across six continents to this new global accelerator program.

This program will focus on two industry verticals: cybersecurity and blockchain. Both will have more of an enterprise bent, but we will be looking for innovations across the spectrum.

Program

SparkLabs Cyber + Blockchain will run a 4-month accelerator program for seed to early-stage startups twice a year. The accelerator will invest $50,000 in all startups in exchange for up to 6% equity.

Each startup gets matched with 2 to 4 mentors. We consider our global mentors to be our greatest asset, and believe that our startups will grow exponentially through our regular sessions with our world-class mentors and various partners across the SparkLabs ecosystem.
