We carefully screen applicants in order to create successful cohorts. We have found that having the right mix of passionate entrepreneurs from around the world leads to a transformative experience for all.
We generally consider startups that fit the following profile:
Highly motivated founders who are either full-time on the enterprise or willing to go full-time when the time is right. Intention matters.
Performed at least some initial work to validate the product idea against market needs (except the incubator program).
Can commit to spending at least 15 hours/week in effort during the program.
Can comfortably handle the program fee.
We have a strong preference for startups who are coming at the 4th Industrial Revolution with a social benefit intention.
