Please have your incubator, accelerator, or VC complete our application form.
We did not create Startup Blueprint to specifically acquire or take equity in startups, but rather to support and foster the startup community.
There is no limit for the number of transactions, but there is a limit for the total amount of the benefits:
Once startups reach one of those limits, they will start receiving PayPal’s and Braintree’s standard fees. Terms apply.
