  • What are the key selection criteria?

As we review applications, we will focus on the following:

  1. The start-up must be based on software and/or hardware solution

  2. How big is the idea? Is it innovative?

  3. Is your project scalable and ambitious?

  4. Is the team comprised of bright, capable, enthusiastic people?

  • At what business stage do I need to be?

We typically look for early-stage start-ups. However, we will also consider startups at more advanced stages if we think they can benefit greatly from the program.

  • Can I apply as a solo entrepreneur?

Yes, although we are more likely to accept company proposals from teams of at least two individuals as there is a lot to accomplish when starting a company. If we really like your idea and you apply by yourself, we may recommend other people to you who can join your team. However, your chances are highest if you apply with a great idea AND a great team.
