    Identifying potential customers, designing a rough prototype, soliciting feedback from the target market, and revising the prototype accordingly


  • Customer Traction

    Capturing market traction/ interest from potential customers


  • Investor Awareness

    Learning how to talk to and attract investors


The accelerator program runs twice a year, with a maximum capacity of 30 teams. For additional information, please see the program homepage.
