Yes! At the moment, we are currently only through Zoom.
No. These sessions are active and engagement is required. Camera on is HIGHLY encouraged.
Idea to just starting to get early traction. Feel free to apply if you're later stage, but the focus will be on earlier stages.
No. Not at all. We just won't be talking about investors.
Absolutely not. For some ventures, they make total sense (ex. bio tech) to be involved. For most ventures though, investors don't make sense.
Scalable, non-VC backed ventures have a tremendous value in the communities they impact, yet, we rarely ever talk about them. Entrepreneurship programs are consistently teaching people how to raise funding and that’s just wrong. Venture capital funding is not a foundational piece to entrepreneurship.
You should be working on your venture for at least 10 hours per week.
We'll meet virtually for 60 minutes and there will be prep work that takes no more than 60 minutes. Additionally, there will be time to chat with others in your cohort outside of sessions.
Guaranteed weekly asynchronous support
