Hear from our Batch 1 Founders and Mentors
Josef Werker, Co-Founder & Managing Director, Penbrothers
Becoming part of the 500 family has been a truly game-changing experience...the sheer quality of mentors, the network they unlock & the relationship built with the 500 team meant that we were able to focus on what was really important, getting the guidance we needed to turn our vision into reality.
Vincent Woon, Co-Founder/CEO of Holistics
The Global Launch program helped us understand diverse perspectives and approaches from different advisors to help us refine and grow our customer segments further.
Antonio Calia
Co-Founder & CEO, Manet Mobile
If you cannot see where you are going, ask someone (like the 500 team and their mentor team) who has been there before. Thanks for everything 500 team!
Emily Basileo, Mentor
The 500 Startups Global Launch program is the best in its class. It was so exciting to watch as the founders and their companies matured over the course of the program. I feel so privileged to have been a (small) part of their growth.
Roland Osborne, Mentor
Global Launch is the real deal! This isn't Silicon Valley tourism! Global Launch companies get actionable and non-sugar coated advice. At the end they'll either come out with a strategy that actually works, or realize that now isn't the time to move into the market.
Natalie Riso, Mentor
Working with the founders, it was immediately apparent that they were asking the right questions. They came with the solution to a global problem and by the end of the program, understood how to effectively translate it across cultural norms and regional practices.

500’s ecosystem accelerators are some of the most highly-sought after startup programs around the world. With an unparalleled network of founders, mentors, and investors, the #500Strong community is one of our biggest assets.
