Announcing our 9th Batch of Startups in Mountain View | 500 Startups | Victor | Scoop.it

We’re back in Mountain View for our latest batch of startups, and we couldn’t be more excited to be in our OG HQ, Yeah, San Francisco might be just a *little* bit cooler, but 500′s first office will always hold a special place in our heart. With that said, we’re thrilled to announce the 29 companies in our latest accelerator!

As usual, the companies come from all over, both internationally, and within the US. International companies are from the Czech Republic, Switzerland, China, India, Canada, Malaysia, Brazil, Australia, UK, and Mexico, while local companies hail from NYC, Rochester, Stanford, Oakland, San Jose, San Francisco, Mountain View, Atlanta and Berkeley.

Hard to believe, but this is our 9th batch of companies to go through our accelerator program. To help the founders build their businesses, we’re bringing in two awesome entrepreneurs-in-residence to mentor and guide them during the program – Malcolm Ong, co-founder of Skillshare, and Poornima Vijayashanker, founder of Femgineer.

One SUPER awesome fact about this batch: 11 of the companies in this group have at least one woman on the founding team.
