MVL Accelerator

Madrona Venture Labs is excited to announce the formation of its first accelerator class.

Madrona Venture Group has incubated and founded startups in Seattle for twenty plus years, including Impinj, Turi, Rover, Placed and Farecast. Formed in 2014, Madrona Venture Labs is a proud extension of those efforts, working alongside founders to build startups from the ground up. We have helped launch 6 promising companies and now we are bringing our experience, network, and capital to even more companies through the MVL Accelerator.

The first MVL Accelerator class will start in September. Each team will receive a $100K investment and participate in a three month program that will help you with everything involved with starting a company: We will walk you through the same playbook we use with our companies. You will do pitch practice in front of Madrona Partners. You will work out of Madrona's new 33rd floor, which will be a hub for Seattle tech entrepreneurship with incredible views of the Puget Sound. We will connect you with the employees, advisors, and co-founders that are the best Seattle has to offer. No hard rules, but some best practices that we’ve developed over the years.
