Meet the revolutionary startups from the Fb Accelerator: Enterprise Options program
With more than 200 million companies using one of our apps each month, Facebook plays a key role in helping small businesses stay connected with customers, innovate, and grow. Facebook has been supporting small businesses with free training, resources and tools for a number of years, and in 2020 we accelerated our investments by launching shops on Facebook and Instagram, the Facebook Business Suite and, more recently, the Facebook Business App Store.
Our next investment in this area is the launch of Facebook Accelerator: Business Solutions – a 12-week virtual program to support 61 startups worldwide that offer solutions for small and medium-sized businesses in four categories:
- Customer data platforms (CDPs)
- System integrators
- Service apps
- Creative apps
For three months, selected startups will have the opportunity to benefit from comprehensive training courses on Facebook’s products and technologies, seek advice from Facebook product and partnership experts, and build a global network of co-founders and innovators.
Today we are happy to announce the 61 startups invited to participate in the Facebook Accelerator: Business Solutions program. These startups were evaluated by an international panel of Facebook experts as part of our application process and were selected for their product, which focuses on adding value to small and medium-sized businesses, a diverse and focused leadership team, breakthrough technology and evidence of business growth.
