We’re not your typical startup accelerator

In fact, we’re anything but typical. Our startup accelerator pushes founders to their limits mentally and physically, only to come out the other end stronger and better prepared to tackle the challenges of creating an extraordinary business.

Startups will be provided housing to live amongst other entrepreneurs. We believe that when entrepreneurs live amongst each other that these collisions foster innovation by opening up the entrepreneurs’ minds to other ways of thinking.

Your success is our success, and our team will act as additional team members to help set your company up for success.

Startups will leave with a toolbelt of resources, knowledge, and connections to continue to thrive after a one-of-a-kind experience.

DSH Accelerator is changing the game

“The entire Draper Startup House team are phenomenal! They really care about every individual company within the cohort and really dig deep into their own experience and connections to help you along the way. And they didn't forget to make it enjoyable for us along the way either. Out of all the accelerators we did, I'd rank this one right at the top! Can't recommend them enough.”

“It’s hard to write out my honest thoughts without making it sound cheesy, but this truly was an amazing experience. I’ve heard a lot about accelerators and have kind of been lead to believe that they’re a waste of time, but this was unbelievably valuable. Was not expecting so many great lessons, speakers, and connections. Will endlessly recommend other founders to the Draper Startup House.”
