Onlab’s Seed Accelerator Program is an intensive, three-month program designed for highly skilled and ambitious entrepreneurs. Based in Tokyo, the program supports startups through funding, office space, and other related facilities along with a highly specialized group of mentors that provides business support. As the oldest accelerator program in Japan, Onlab has identified patterns that lead to startup failures, and insights and case studies that lead to growth and success.
The Seed Accelerator Program consists of two programs every year: the Winter Batch and the Summer Batch. For more information regarding applications, please look at our Facebook, Twitter, newsletter, or visit our applications page on our website.
We provide various content, information, and mentoring to help iterate your product and business during our three-month program.
Onlab provides specialized support from successful entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and large corporates to provide service, product, and business advice. Our experience staff works closely with each participating team to refine business hypotheses, product market fit, growth strategies, and provide presentation and pitch support.
Our program offers access for entrepreneurs to connect and build ties with startups in similar stages as well as reach out to a community of successful entrepreneurs. As we accumulate more and more participants, our network of entrepreneurs, mentors, and investors grows and becomes an integral part of the value we provide our startups.
All participating teams receive funding from Onlab of up to 10 million yen during the three-month program. The conclusion of our program is our Demo Day, where we invite over 50 Japanese and international investors to help our startups fundraise. We also provide one-on-one advice and mentoring for fundraising tips.
Participating teams can use the Open Network Spaces in Daikanyama and Kamakura, and can use the incubation space in San Francisco at a discounted price. Many tenants in the Open Network Spaces are either Onlab graduates or entrepreneurs, which gives participating teams additional networking opportunities.
Onlab offers special discounts and plans for various services that startups often need to better focus on developing and growing their products. Services include infrastructure, development tools, hiring, and back-office tools.
