How We Do It

We provide the minimum requirements an entrepreneur shall meet prior joining the lab. We receive the idea and provide feedback for the entrepreneur to work on it. We set up a pitch day and the entrepreneurs presents twice. First a 6 minute presentation and a 10’ Q&A in which we provide feedback. After 1 hour a 30’ presentation  with 30’ Q&A as a discussion. Based on the maturity of the idea the entrepreneurs joins our accelerator program. Ideas that need further development are rescheduled for a second set of presentations. More>
