Capital. Creative. Connections.

We don’t just help companies build their products.
We help them build their brands.

A new model for acceleration.

Many accelerators are programs designed to help startups rapidly develop their product and attract investment. We’ve developed a unique offering that goes beyond the traditional mentor-intensive, co-location model, providing real value to companies at every stage.

Financial capital

We invest in each of our program companies at current valuations. Deal terms vary depending on the stage of each startup as well as the terms of funding raised previously.

Creative capital

We match each of our startups with the right experts across our global network, providing consulting, strategy, design, copywriting, business development, brand transformation, and more.

Partner and client capital

We give startups exposure and access to R/GA’s global client network and industry-spanning corporate partners. These organizations participate in our programs not only as mentors, but advisors, pilot partners, customers, and investors.

Our programs

We build our programs around strategic themes — IoT, Commerce and Retail, Marketing Tech, Sports and Entertainment Tech, Media Tech, and more— and build cohorts to support them.

First we curate a purpose-built team for every startup, drawing from agency disciplines ranging from strategy and experience design to technology and branding. These experts then work alongside the founders, helping them build better products and brands.
