Application Opens Our website will launch at the end of Sept and include our online application, as well as the latest details and up-to-date information about the program.
Application Deadline Once the applications are submitted, we will review them and reach out to select teams via Skype to ask follow up questions and get to know the founders. The top 10-15 teams advance to the Selection Camp.
Selection Camp A 3-day immersive workshop experience followed by a third day of convergence with the other two tracks. Key mentors and partners will be invited to observe and participate. The purpose of the selection camp is for us to see the teams in action and help us identify the top 5-7 who we will invite to join the program.
Program Launches Official launch date for the program. Office space and monthly stipend start from here.
Phase I: Customer Discovery & Validation The first two months of the program will focus on validating the problem, planned solution, and customer base. Participants will dive deep into lean tactics for rapidly testing their ideas and honing in on the best concept to develop into a prototype.
Phase II: Product Development The middle portion of the program will center around agile and iterative product development, building prototypes, and pivoting based on continued customer conversations.
Phase III: Rolling Out & Market Feedback The final two months of the program will be about hustling and selling, growth hacking, getting the product out to alpha and beta testers.
Demo Day Startups will present their progress at the end of the 6 months in front of an audience of our investor and accelerator partners.
