The Alexa Fund provides up to $200 million in venture capital funding to fuel voice technology innovation. We believe experiences designed around the human voice will fundamentally improve the way people use technology.

We are honoured to work with founders who are trailblazers in their fields and to help them navigate Amazon and innovate with Alexa.

Amazon Alexa Fund and Alexa Startups are excited to open the application round for Black Founders Build with Alexa, a remote four-month program for a cohort of up to 10 Black-founded startups located in North America that demonstrate readiness and ability to deliver novel Alexa integration within the program duration.

Each company selected for the program will have an opportunity to receive up to a $100,000 investment from the Alexa Fund and individualized technology support from the Alexa Startups Solution Architect and Business Development teams. Founders will receive invitations to speak at events and participate in panel discussions and demo showcases.

 

Duration: The program duration will be four months for startups developing Alexa skills and will extend to one year of individual Solution Architect and Business Development support for device makers working on Alexa Voice Service (AVS) integrations.

Investment: Every company selected for the program will have an opportunity to receive up to a $100,000 investment from the Alexa Fund, in the form of a Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE).

Technical support: Throughout the program, selected startups’ technical teams will engage with Alexa technical experts and Solution Architects, who will help advise on technical aspects of Alexa skill and AVS integrations.

 

If you are interested in this program, complete your two-step application by 5:00 PM PT on April 24, 2022. As a first step, fill out and submit the form below. Once the form is submitted, check your email and fill out the survey that you will receive including a brief proposal of the Alexa skill or AVS integration you want to work on.
