It would be awesome for you to join as a team (min 2, max 3). If not, please indicate in your application that you do not have a team and we will find a team for you to join. Our goal is to have well balanced teams with diverse skillsets and background just like in the real world.
Is this accelerator in-person or online?
We are still practicing social distancing and also want to make our accelerator inclusive globally. Hence we have deliberately decided that we want to be time zone friendly. As long as you and your team members can work in overlapping/similar timezones, we will attempt to match you with a mentor in your timezone. Any of live Q&A sessions will be recorded so you can still watch when it is convenient for you. Additionally we are always in Slack should you need us.
Can I get a refund if I'm unable to attend?
At this time, you can transfer your seat to another person. This is because we would have already sourced mentors and industry panels based on our enrolment.
