Welcome to the Seed Accelerators Knowledge Base

Seed accelerators originated with Paul Graham and the birth of Y Combinator in 2005.  Since then, they've become extremely popular, with over 60 seed accelerators world-wide.

This site exists to serve as a centralized knowledge base of everything related to seed accelerators.

(The site is essentially an MVP; I would encourage hearing from you what else you'd like to see here.)


This site was created by Jed Christiansen, who wrote the paper "Copying Y Combinator: a framework for developing Seed Accelerator programmes".  The paper and all appendices can be found on this site.  If you have any questions, comments, additions, edits, or concerns, please contact me by clicking here.
