Pax Momentum
THE B2B Sales Accelerator

Founders quickly learn that no product, not even great ones, sells itself. PAX has created a fast-paced, virtual accelerator to help founders plan their go-to-market strategy, build revenue traction and raise the funding needed to scale a company.

PAX facilitates founder success in tangible ways


PAX offers an 8-week virtual program of interactive and actionable classes focused on helping you build a repeatable and scalable sales process. 


      PAX invests $125k ($100k cash/$25k in kind) into each cohort company through their preferred vehicle. PAX also hosts events to introduce startups to other investors.


      PAX founders love the 1:1 office hours with our diverse community of former founders and investors. The mentors (Pare a valuable resource for tricky questions around pricing, thorny team issues, accounting/legal, and other common startup challenges.

        Are you….

        • Overwhelmed with trying to develop a cohesive B2B sales strategy?
        • Fed up with hiring and firing ineffective salespeople?
        • Tired of not closing deals in a timely manner?
        • Unsure of what pricing strategy would resonate with your target audiences?
        • Disenchanted with the unfair terms of other accelerators?
        PAX runs two 8-week virtual programs a year. We accept 8-12 companies for each of these cohorts.
        PAX primarily looks for pre-seed B2B SaaS companies and reserves 3 spots each cohort for Climatetech companies. 

        Pax Momentum has helped over 50 founders scale, and we can do the same for you.

        "PAX Demo Day was a huge event for us, it gave us access to a deeper investor ecosystem which we desperately needed at the time. It put us in front of not only investors but also potential partners who we're now integrating with to increase our revenue per user. So the program was very exciting for us!”

        Andrew Elliot

        RoundlyX CEO

        “I love the Pax Momentum program because it is helping me improve my sales skills, which MOST programs do NOT do. Sales are so important to any startup and if the Founder(s) can sell and close deals, it will propel EVERYTHING else in our businesses. Thanks so much PAX Team!”

        Celebrating PAX Women CEOs

        As we wrap up Women's History Month, I don’t want to miss the chance to brag about the inspirational female founders that PAX has invested in. Working closely with these trailblazing CEOs is one of the highlights of my job. But what makes these women truly remarkable? Instead of relying on my own admiration, I went straight to the source - their co-founders.

        Pax Momentum is thrilled to announce the members of its Spring-23 cohort!

        This cohort marks a turning point for PAX, with a record number of applications and the strongest companies we’ve had the chance to evaluate. After a very intense selection process, we are excited to introduce the eight companies that make up our Spring-23 cohort.‍
