Is The Farm right for you?

We believe that existing accelerator models are outdated and optimized for the investor, rather than the entrepreneur. At The Farm, we orbit around our entrepreneurs: period. Everything we do is to maximize their success. We offer new approaches to programming, mentorship, curriculum and just about everything else. We aim to create great entrepreneurs, because great entrepreneurs create great companies.

The Farm is backed by Comcast NBCUniversal, a global media and technology leader with a long history of supporting startups. In the spirit of Ralph Roberts, an entrepreneur who founded Comcast as a small startup and shaped it into one of the world’s largest brands, The Farm will focus on the health and long-term success of the companies and the entrepreneurs who are selected.

RESOURCES: Teams selected for each cohort receive $35K in seed capital in exchange for 7% of equity. In addition, teams get an estimated $1.7 million in perks. Companies taking part in the program gain valuable connections to enthusiastic startup mentors, investors, and alumni.

MENTORS: The Farm’s world-class mentor network includes some of the most talented minds in technology, business, branding, and strategy. We match entrepreneurs with top industry leaders, all of whom are passionate about supporting startups.

CUSTOMIZED: Unlike many accelerators, The Farm customizes every program to build a curriculum around our founders’ unique needs. We adapt our content to the needs of each individual startup, supporting and educating entrepreneurs where they need it most.

We invest in the founder

The Farm invests in early-stage startups because this is where we believe we can have the most value. Our goal is to give founders the tools they need to grow and flourish. The goal of our startup accelerator is not simply to provide the shortest distance between an idea and funding, but to support entrepreneurs in building successful, sustainable, investable companies.
