Startup52 is an early-stage accelerator based in New York City. As the first sole diversity-focused accelerator in NYC, Startup52 was founded by Chike Ukaegbu to identify and groom outstanding entrepreneurs, especially those from untapped and under-tapped communities in tech. We look for innovative teams that comprise of at least one founder from an under-served community in tech, as well as those focused on development in emerging markets like Africa. While we do not discriminate, we favor ventures with founding teams comprised at least in part of our target communities. Untapped Communities include people of color, women, entrepreneurs who are veterans, seniors, identify as LGBTQ, with disability, new immigrants and more.
