Over a year ago, we welcomed our first cohort into the Atoms program. A handpicked and diverse range of early-stage founders from companies across SaaS to B2B, and D2C to hardware. These founders were supported with non-dilutive funding, mentorship, and access to the Accel community to build their business.
Our inaugural Atoms cohort went on to raise a cumulative amount of $60M to support their mission to create category-defining companies and build meaningful relationships across the startup and venture community. Today we're thrilled to welcome our second cohort of promising global startups: Atoms 02
Atoms 02 comprises 10 startups in sectors such as B2B marketplaces, healthtech, SaaS, and developer tools. These 23, early-stage founders come from the United States to Singapore, and India to Australia.
As before, we offered each of these startups $250K of non-dilutive funding as experimental capital to build their business, and paired them with experienced founders and operators across the Accel network.
Selected from thousands of submissions, Atoms 02 brings together startups from distinct sectors that we believe are poised to build category-defining companies.We’re excited to introduce you to them!

YouShd is a full-funnel content-to-monetization platform that enables DTC brands to reduce their CAC and CPC by scaling UGC with authentic, genuine content from influencers and creators. When an influencer/creator purchases from the site, they activate the YouShd code, following which they get remunerated based on high trust clicks, views, or conversions.
For brands who're looking to crack this complex code, YouShd brings trust and traceability to brands with the help of data that they will then require to reward and compensate existing users for sharing their honest first-hand reviews, stories, and opinions.
