  • 3-month access to our learn-by-doing proven methodology.
  • 18h of one to one mentorship with your personal support.
  • “Checkpoints”, online meetings with your cohort and our team to deepen the work on each critical aspect of your business and leverage the collective intelligence of the group.
  • Lifetime access to a community of fellow founders and mentors.
  • Participation in the cohort award to compete for seed capital.

We support early stage entrepreneurs that either have a solid idea they’re passionate about pursuing, an MVP/prototype with little business structure, or an early-stage company. Most of our cohorts are open to all sectors, but some are sector-based, so make sure you check the program details before exploring projects. We have entrepreneurs and mentors from 57+ countries and the program is 100% online, so you can easily join from anywhere in the world. As of today the program is available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
