StartR is a nonprofit accelerator for Rady School of Management students and alumni.
Founded in 2013 by a group of UC San Diego Rady School students working on an independent study project, the mission of the accelerator is to provide a program where early stage companies and student teams get mentoring, advice and access to other resources.
StartR participants have access to UC San Diego’s formidable research ecosystem, which is among the best in the world.
The Rady School of Management is ranked 19th globally in faculty research and 7th worldwide for entrepreneurship by The Financial Times.
StartR accelerates ventures of all kinds – from hardware-driven consumer products to mobile health software and nonprofit social ventures.
Tap into Rady’s alumni network of entrepreneurs -- many of whom start companies right after graduation.
Mentors customize appropriate goals for each StartR team – and then help the team keep their momentum.
