Leading a startup requires two things: strong fundamentals (customer acquisition, term sheets, product/market fit), and deep emotional support from other founders when fundamentals aren’t enough. The Startup Leadership Program (SLP) provides both.
SLP is a 6-month program now in its 10th year with an alumni base of 2,200 fellows, +$500m raised, and 21 cities worldwide. The program takes zero equity and is run by founders providing an interactive curriculum on starting a company, access to mentors/investors, and a lifelong global network. their classes are led by leaders from Venmo, TechCruch, Birchbox, Google, and the fellows themselves.
Application for this year’s class is here (due 8/1)
