We believe entrepreneurs are the core engine for global economic growth. Our mission is to create equality of entrepreneurial opportunity by connecting them to the mentorship, knowledge, resources, and networks they need to succeed and inspire.
Global network of subject matter experts, value-aligned investors, executive coaches, and successful entrepreneurs offer targeted feedback and direct exposure to the Silicon Valley mindset.
We challenge founders to identify their summit and true north, all the while equipping them with the tools and frameworks needed to build and lead a team that will take them to the top.
Blackboxers join an active global community of more than four hundred highly selected entrepreneurs since 2011 committed to supporting and elevating one another.
A step back from the day-to-day grind to reconnect with your personal vision, explore vulnerabilities and embrace your full potential as a founder is a valuable investment in your company's and your own future.
Blackbox is rethinking the traditional accelerator model.
We believe this model is more focused on investors than founders and doesn’t do enough to address inequality of entrepreneurial opportunity and strengthen emerging startup ecosystems across the globe. While connecting startups to capital is important, an entrepreneur’s long-term success requires access to a more holistic set of resources.
The Blackbox approach is designed to be entrepreneur-first at every step, working to create a strong foundation under the founder which elevates their long-term potential, expands their worldview, exposes them to new opportunities, and connects them to their own greatness. By helping founders become better leaders, we empower them to redefine what’s possible for themselves, their company, their community, and the world.
Despite the tech-driven democratization of entrepreneurship, millions of entrepreneurs across the globe are still unable to realize their full potential because of institutional, cultural, and social barriers. The economic impact is enormous — the Global Entrepreneurship Development Institute (GEDI) estimates that improving the conditions that support entrepreneurship by 10 percent could add $22 trillion to the global GDP each year.
