If you’re an early-stage or pre-seed entrepreneur, we’re here to tell you not to give up on this year just yet. Plenty of competitions and startup accelerator deadlines for 2020 are still open, looking for the perfect startups to fit their programs. The good news is that some of them are taking place remotely!

We’ve collected a few options here and we recommend you to check them ALL out as some deadlines are approaching soon and this list is frequently updated.

Also, despite the fact some of them are based in certain countries, they accept applications from startups based in other regions or from all over the world.

Slidebean is a venture-funded startup and went through three accelerator programs which definitely contributed to where the company is today. From experience, if you’re the right founder, we encourage you to give them a try!
