The Accelerator Program for eCommerce Startups is a year-long program open to applicants who are new to ShipHero and currently process under 5,000 shipments per month. Applicants must also be under two years old and have received less than $1 million in funding.

The first application window will run from Friday October 1st through Friday October 15th. Once this first application window closes, ShipHero will select five businesses to participate, with the first-round winners to be notified the week of October 25th, 2021.

The Accelerator Program will continue throughout 2022 with applications opening quarterly for 15 days and new startups to be selected each quarter.

ShipHero Accelerator Program Benefits

Startups selected for the program will receive the tools and mentoring needed to take their businesses to the next level, including access to ShipHero’s enterprise-scale software at a 90% discount.

Other benefits of the program include access to a community of peers:

  • Monthly roundtable sessions with other participants to discuss universal issues in the eCommerce space.
  • Exclusive offers from industry partners Loop and Shippo.
  • Monthly One-on-One mentorship with a ShipHero expert to talk through key topics such as processes, warehouse hiring and management, and carrier selection.
  • Free brand exposure through marketing and communications by ShipHero.

ShipHero’s Accelerator Program was developed from CEO and Founder Aaron Rubin’s own experience as an entrepreneur as he bootstrapped the company with a $435,000 investment from friends and family in 2013.

“The ShipHero Accelerator Program is a project I’ve been working to bring to life for some time now. Our industry is showing no signs of slowing down and, with ongoing disruptions throughout the supply chain causing delays, it’s critical for emerging brands to be armed with the best tools and knowledge to grow their businesses. This is our way of continuing to support the eCommerce community moving into 2022 and beyond.”

Eight years later, ShipHero received $50 million in investment capital for the company’s continued growth and development of new features such as today’s release of PostHero as well as expanding its network of fulfillment warehouses and logistics services nationwide.

This year, ShipHero already shipped its 100 millionth package, and the company says 10% of every Shopify+ store owner globally uses ShipHero Fulfillment.

Ready for lift-off? Applications for the ShipHero Accelerator Program open Friday, October 1st, and will close on October 15th at 11:59pm PT. Full information on the program, including applicant rules are available here.
