Facebook Accelerator: Commerce applications are now open

1 Mins read

At Facebook, we believe that by connecting, training, and growing entrepreneurs and startups through our programs, we can empower people to solve relevant, meaningful problems and build products that billions of people can use and benefit from. We’re always looking for ways to provide even more value for startups through our programs, and that’s why we are excited to announce the launch of Facebook Accelerator: Commerce

In this critical time, Facebook is accelerating its work to enable every business to sell online by doubling down on commerce. Through these investments, we are weaving shopping into the fabric of each of our apps to help people gather inspiration, discover, and buy the products they love. The Facebook Accelerator: Commerce program is designed for startups in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, building on commerce platforms, innovating solutions around catalog functionality, and enhancing the overall commerce experience through conversational tools and immersive shopping experiences.

Up to 30 startups will be selected to participate in a virtual 12-week program in which they will receive 1:1 mentorship from Facebook employees, training on Facebook’s approach to products and businesses, and access to a global network of startup peers, successful founders, and industry experts.

Join the next cohort of innovators. Applications are open until August 31st, 2020. Applications are evaluated and selected on an on-going basis so we strongly recommend applying early.
