We’ve made it our mission to find the next generation of great companies around the world. DSH Accelerator fosters and funds early stage startups — providing an environment, where passion, creativity and a desire to change the world collide.

We’re on the Lookout for the World’s Next Unicorns

From our roots in Draper Startup House to our collaboration with the Draper Venture Network, Draper University & “Meet the Drapers”, we know firsthand what it takes for startups to succeed. Early opportunities, access to funding, the right mentors, and a creative environment for fostering and growing great ideas into phenomenal businesses, can often be deciding factors on whether a company ever gets off the ground.

Our 2022 startup accelerators take place in Austin TX, home to a vibrant startup culture. Future startup accelerators will follow a pop-up model and be housed at various locations across the world.

We look for:

  • Exceptional People
  • Extraordinary, Out-of-the-Box and Unconventional Ideas
  • Startups across all industries

Are you the world’s next unicorn?
