For-Profit We don’t invest in projects, non-profits, or teams at existing institutions. We invest in for-profit, scalable start-up ventures. You don’t need to have your business model or growth strategy figured out at the start, but you should be very serious about cracking it.
Committed & Capable At the end of the day, it’s about the people. We are looking for scrappy, multi-disciplinary teams of 2-4 full-time co-founders who have a history of working well together. Your team has the technical skills to build your product, and all of you are ready to move to San Francisco or New York City for the full duration of the program.
Ready for Acceleration Our program is proven to work for companies at various stages — whether you’re pre-funding with a working prototype or in the midst of closing a $1.5M seed round with a launched product. Either way, you must be dedicated to iterative learning and prototyping in order to achieve product-market fit and scale.
