Morgan Stanley Inclusive Ventures LabEligibility?

The ideal candidate will meet the following criteria:

  • Is an underrepresented founder, co-founder, CTO or other C-suite member.
  • Has founded a technology or technology-enabled startup that falls within the Seed to Series A funding round stage.
  • Has launched product with demonstrated revenues that validate the initial business model and market opportunity.


Morgan Stanley will provide participating companies with a cash contributiona five-month curated program, mentorship, networking, office space for the duration of the program, and access to certain external advisors in exchange for an equity stake of 5.00%. The cash contribution is $250,000 to each company participating in our New York-based program and £250,000 to each company participating in our London-based program. 

Do I have to live in or relocate to NYC or London to participate? 

We believe that the value of our program lies in part with the relationships built among the cohort and with the broader Morgan Stanley community. In the past, this required all participants to be on site in our offices for the duration of the program. However, since 2022, Lab activities and events have been operating on a hybrid remote and in-person model.

When are applications open?

Applications are currently open and are being accepted on a rolling basis for both our New York-based and London-based 2023 cohorts. We encourage interested applicants to apply early due to limited space and high application volume.

Do I have to lead a FinTech company in order to apply?

No. We look for technology or technology-enabled startups across a variety of sectors.
