TinySeed is a year-long, remote accelerator designed for early-stage SaaS founders, and as of today we are accepting applications for our third batch 🎉
In case you haven't heard of TinySeed, we emerged from a need we saw among MicroConf and other indie maker communities of founders who start to find traction, but struggle to hit escape velocity before they run out of steam. Whether due to a day job, or because they need mentorship and guidance to get there faster.
Funding-wise, we invest $120k for the first founder and $60k per additional founder, and our standard terms are for 10-12% equity.
Beyond funding, we want to help founders reach a flow state — where our founders have all the resources, community, and mentorship they need to execute great work as fast as they need.
Our mentor program is designed so founders have numerous options for help. We work with successful founders with multiple wins under their belt; folks like Jason Fried (Basecamp and HEY), Rand Fishkin (SparkToro), Chris Savage (Wistia), and Laura Roeder (MeetEdgar).
We are also honored to have subject-matter experts on board, like Steli Efti for sales, Taylor Hendricksen for growth marketing, April Dunford for positioning, Joanna Wiebe for copywriting, and Patrick Campbell for pricing. (Full mentor list here).
We start our year with educational presentations and one-on-one work on critical topics (like pricing), and move to mentor Q&As and founder workshops as the year progresses. In addition to weekly calls and masterminds, we have an active, private Slack community and quarterly retreats — currently remote, but hopefully in-person in 2021.
Applications will be open for two weeks starting today. We’ll be reviewing applications during January and February, with the next batch starting at the beginning of May.
