WHAT ABOUT _?

  • How much does it cost?
    It’s 100% free. No $$ or equity
  • Do I need to attend in person?
    Nope, you just need a stable internet connection.
  • Can I join if I don't have an idea?
    Yes, but you need to have identified that you want to do a startup, and you need to come up with your idea fast.
  • What happens if I miss a session?
    Nothing, they’re recorded. But you’ll miss out on the intros, connects, and Q&A.
  • I'm kinda past some of this stuff?
    No worries, the coursework is self-guided, so you can work on what’s relevant for you, and still get all the perks of the program.
  • How many teams will you accept?
    We anticipate having a cohort max of 200 participants
  • Do I get a mentor?
    Yes, we mentor all the teams at scale, and to be eligible for 1-on-1s you need to show momentum.
  • Will I get funding out of this?
    We don't promise funding to the teams participating, but you can apply for funding, and we seriously consider startups with momentum, validation, and a strong business model design.
