500 Startups Accelerator Announces Its Tenth Batch Of Companies
Congrats Dave McClure and team
In order to get more companies through its program, 500 Startups has been alternating between hosting batches in San Francisco and Mountain View, California. The accelerator’s tenth batch will be the second based in San Francisco.
As with previous batches, 500 Startups is touting the diversity of its latest group. The current bunch includes 11 companies with at least one woman on the founding team — same as the last batch — and 18 companies with at least one founder born outside of the United States.
While several of the startups are originally from the Bay Area, 500 Startups continued its practice of bringing in companies from around the world. In several cases, these startups are specifically targeting markets where they originated in the Middle East and Asia.
