Entrepreneurs who participate in an accelerator like PAX

raise money more quickly, find more direct paths to customer traction, and exit earlier than companies who don’t attend top accelerators.

For each cohort, we are looking for 10 early-stage startups (reserving 3 out of the ten spots for ClimateTech companies). We have successfully invested in 20-year-old founders and 60-year-old founders – the goal is simply to find and cultivate great talent.

PAX Momentum Accelerator is meant to supplement your entrepreneurial activities. The program and trainings are designed to complement your continued progress towards product development and business launch, not take you away from spending time on your company. The program accelerates and increases the acuity of your efforts.


The Accelerator program is comprised of three key components


Each cohort will attend three intensive  summits. These two-day summits might include: 

Office Hours

 Pax Momentum founder Matthew Hanson and other dedicated advisors are available for weekly office hours throughout the program. 

Demo Day: We organize a Demo Day at the end of each cohort session to introduce start-ups to the investment community. During and after the program, PAX is committed to helping your company match with the right investors through focused introductions.


Classroom/MBA – style education

pax Advisors

PAX Advisors consist of PAX Headliners and PAX Professors. PAX Advisors support the start-ups throughout the program, offering one-on-one digital office hours, exclusive webinars, and focused, small-group working sessions.

 PAX Headliners: CEO/Founders with remarkable success.

PAX Professors: Entrepreneurs with big wins and an abundance of wisdom to share.

Darren Lee, a Pax Headliner, shared a unique system he and his mentors developed for quickly determining whether your idea for a product is something customers want. Darren credits this process for supercharging his startup, culminating in a successful exit to Proofpoint, a global $6 billion email security company based in Silicon Valley.

ClimateTech Initiative

Sustainable Profits for a Safer Planet

PAX Momentum aligns environmental and economic goals. That’s why three out of the ten spots in our program are reserved for ClimateTech companies. Their categories comprise solar, wind, biofuel, recycling, water purification, green transportation, gray water, and more.

Why? Because it's essential.

1) We care about the environment. We select companies that we believe will have a positive impact on the climate, global resources, and on the other companies in the cohort.

2) ClimateTech will play a large role in our economic future. PAX Momentum is both a thought and economic leader, that strives to attract investments to and accelerate the economic viability of ClimateTech solutions.

Thank you for all that you and the team are pouring into us!  I absolutely love the sales focus and all of the great resources that you are putting in our hands. I can tell you without blowing smoke, that not only are we internalizing the curriculum, we are working hard to build the sales tools and implement the methodology that we have been learning about.  This is really good stuff!”

These three weeks with PAX Momentum have been really exciting for us and we are looking forward to more of the events, sessions and interactions.”
