Bento Accelerators are located in San Francisco, London, New York, and Tokyo, with feeders in multiple emerging markets. Selected nascent ventures, many having completed seed funding and tenure at a major startup incubator, are brought to the global capitals for financial and strategic opportunities simply unavailable in their home countries. Bento provides unique access to global financial resources including work space, merchant & investment bankers, funding alternatives that minimize surrender of equity, mentorship, programming, educational resources, and professional certification – all under the umbrella of a world class institutional investment firm, in partnership with some of the largest investment banks in the world. All without cost of equity.
