What is SLP?

Startup Leadership Program (SLP) is a no-equity accelerator focused on developing early stage entrepreneurs. More than 2,500 founders completed SLP and have raised over $600M collectively.

During our 6 month curriculum, entrepreneurs learn some of the key fundamentals about starting and growing a company, negotiating a term sheet, developing a marketing strategy, and many other technical and non-technical aspects of leadership.

The classes are conducted by fellows and feature some of the most prominent people in the NYC startup scene.

Our New-York Startup Leadership Community


A critical component of your education at SLP is learning from and sharing with your peers. The New York Chapter has over 200 alumni who have collectively raised over $200 million in venture capital. Entrepreneurship has a steep learning curve, and as such, an entrepreneur can greatly benefit from an effective mentor. These alums can become potential mentors as they have been through the startup cycle.  Additionally, during the program, there will be an opportunity to pair with 2-3 SLP partners with relevant experience in your field and help you develop mentorship relationships that will help guide your business.
