FIVN is powered by the Founder Institute, the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator, and our sister company VC Lab, an accelerator to launch venture funds.

Get Access to the Right Investors

As the startup investment landscape becomes more specialized, it is critical for founders to target investors focused on their specific stage, business vertical, and geography.

Our network includes investors from 6 continents focused on founders at the earliest stages across nearly every business vertical, and FI Alumni have raised over $1.8BN in funding.

It all starts with our 'FI Core' accelerator, which pushes founders at the idea and pre-seed stages to reach milestones needed for investment and sustained growth.

When they are ready, Alumni of 'FI Core' get free access to our advanced 'Founder Lab' accelerators and work closely with our Silicon Valley team.
