F50 Elevate™ (F50E) is an Accelerator Program that focuses on the key challenge for early-stage operating startups; how to prepare to effectively raise their first significant late seed or angel round.

Our advantage is a community of over 100,000 members consisting of a large global investor network, vast entrepreneur reach and brand equity within the venture ecosystem built on 23 investor summits over the past five years. The program accelerates the success with the collective intelligence of our deep roots in Silicon Valley, together with our angel network, corporate partners, and industry experts.

Why we started F50 Elevate

With the slow down in early-stage funding over the past few years, it has become more challenging for great startup founders to raise capital at the speed they require. F50 Elevate has created a Cohort Program that invests focus and energy to help the great founders from our community to move faster to the next level. 

Why startups should join an F50 Elevate Cohort Program

Access to the large Global Investor Network, including VIPs from our investor summit and private receptions as well as speakers and attendees.

Successful F50 Portfolios

F50 Elevate is very well-positioned to take on this important role, with a track record of successful startup selection, guidance and investment over its 5-year history. The accelerator is built on top of the F50 venture ecosystem, which was launched in 2014 and has rapidly become one of the largest investment networks in Silicon Valley. 

Since it began its Summit events in June 2014, F50’s 237 selected companies have collectively raised more than $100 million through the F50 network of investors. The F50 Venture Fund has invested directly in 30 of the most promising of these companies, including trending startups like Oculii, Knightscope, Flirtey, Plastic, Doc.AI and others. And the eight companies in the first F50 Elevate Cohort have already received serious interest from Tier 1, boutique and angel investors just one month into the 10-week program.
