The a16z START program fuels founders at the earliest stages of company-building by encouraging and equipping them with the 1:1 support and tools they need to succeed.

Powered by the a16z seed fund in collaboration with partners investing across American Dynamism, Consumer, EnterpriseFintech, and Games, a16z meets STARTers where they are in their journey — whether it’s honing their product vision and defining a target audience, or building, launching, and scaling their MVP. a16z STARTers are also introduced to a network of peers, repeat founders, product executives, and more to help validate their thesis and scale it into a world-changing business.

Use the application below to tell us about yourself and your area of interest. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and investment terms discussed with final candidates. For more information see here.

*Please note that due to an overwhelming amount of interest, we are currently only accepting applications for American Dynamism and Fintech, and have paused on accepting applications for Consumer, Enterprise, and Games. Please check back in the future for updates.
