The 10th Accelerator Program at Betaworks

Our next AI Camp, starting in Feb 2024, is focused on agents and the technology that both enables their creation and ensures they fulfill your/their goals. You can read more about our thesis on agents here.

Selected camp companies will each receive $500k total investment from Betaworks and our syndication partners, as well as one-on-one mentorship time, tailored programming, events, and product development-focused guidance. Plus, you’ll be offered collaborative opportunities with other cohort companies and builders in our network.

Programming takes place at the Betaworks offices in NYC's Meatpacking District, where teams will have access to shared workspace, desks, and conference rooms. Beyond the first and final two weeks (when teams are required to participate IRL), hybrid options are available, but we encourage teams to prioritize participating in-person for the entire session. In the final week each team will present their product at Demo Day before a room of investors.

The Camp application has closed.

What is Camp?

Tell your story, develop your roadmap, and find your fit.

Since 2016 we’ve been running sessions of Camp, our cohort-based investment and product development program that goes deep on tech modalities and themes we’re excited about. 

Each camp consists of 13 weeks “in-residence” at Betaworks to help early stage companies with product development, platform strategy, data science, branding, and fundraising. Entrepreneurs have access to the Betaworks team, its network, and to a carefully curated group of industry leaders to assist with general company-building needs. See previous Camp themes and companies below.

What founders are saying about our Camp and mentorship program:

“Overall, it was a great experience, and I would highly recommend the program to other founders. The Betaworks team and the other camp companies were super helpful.”

“Really love the Betaworks team. Very accessible, with grounded and realistic advice. Office space is also incredible!”

“I've done other accelerators, I've been a mentor in some, and the spirit of the Betaworks camp is the one that best shows an understanding of what early-stage innovation really is.” 

“Today this Open Souls only exists because Betaworks took a real chance on me when no-one else would.”

“I feel that, here, I learn by rubbing shoulders with other innovators and getting immersed in the right environment. I love it. Never lose that spirit.”

“I absolutely LOVED spending time here and embedding myself in this wonderful environment.”

”A very valuable experience! The program was authentic and everyone brought a lot of experience to the group. My cohort continually shared valuable resources and was inspiring.”

“It was so important to me during this time to connect with other founders going through similar management trials. Helped get me out of my own way and stay positive.”
