Cheat Sheet for Hardware Startup Accelerators

Here’s the link to the original Google spreadsheet. Please feel free edit! 🙂

What’s interesting about the data above is that there are two programs that criss cross China, and a bunch that don’t:
- HAXL8R starts in Shenzhen and does their final demo day in San Francisco; it’s all about an immersion in China for them.
- Highway1 is mostly based in San Francisco, but includes a field trip to Shenzhen; there’s a more clear focus on the US market using Chinese manufacturing for them.
- Berlin Hardware Accelerator and Startupbootcamp (HighTechLX) seem to be about European manufacturing; the subtext is we can do it here in Europe too.
- Am I missing any Chinese language programs?
P.S. Our friends over at PCH/Highway1 are touring Hong Kong and China this week – see here for more details.

I was in the first class of HAXLR8R. Filling in a couple blanks, the backing parent is SOSVentures, and the percent is 6-10%. They also offer a 25k convertible note if the company wants it.
Thanks Bob! Very helpful.
I am an advisor to HAXLR8R, I edited with the latest info.
Thanks Benjamin! Appreciate the comprehensive detail.
Thanks for putting this list together, I just added AlphaLab Gear. It’s a new accelerator based in Pittsburgh, PA.
Hadn’t seen that one before. Thx for the add Jeff. Formatted it and put it first (since it’s all in alphabetical order :))
