Starve Ups was Oregon's first startup accelerator and has been built upon its cornerstone of "proven peer mentoring for founders", which is exactly what Starve Ups stands for, excels at, and focuses on as a group. Starve Ups was launched by founders, and is solely for founders, of innovative and disruptive startups in all industries. The group works tirelessly to statistically change the game for founders and to make startups exponentially more successful in a more efficient and effective ecosystem.
It is simple, the end-to-end full lifecycle approach of Starve Ups is to support each of our membershp companies to SURVIVE the R&D and launch phase, to STRIVE to profitablity and expansion, and to THRIVE to their positive exit or existence. Today, nearly a decade and a half later, Starve Ups companies are 6 times more likely to stay in business, 5 times more likely to garner angel and VC funding, and 2.5 times more likely to be acquired via a positive exit than other startups nationally.
