  3. Your founding team consists of at least two roles (for example: CEO and CTO)

  4. You do not need your entire team to attend, only decision makers, min 1, max 5 attendees per team (we strongly recommend 4-5 attendees from one team).

  5. We strongly recommend that one of your attending team members is a technical person or developer

  6. Attending team members are able to attend for the entire 5 days of event

  7. You can make time for a short interview 

Be prepared​

This is not your average accelerator. If you want to get out most of it, be prepared to:

  1. Be open (accept that you may need to make major change to your company or idea very quickly)

  2. Make decisions and be active (if we discover a white space, we'll ask to fill the gap right away)

  3. Know your customers (this will be crucial to the success of your startup)

  4. Rely on data (if you haven't done that, we will test your hypothesis and prove its validity through data - not assumptions)

Overall: Be prepared that we'll ask you tough questions, but rest assured they will be in your best interest, as our goal is your success.
