Committed to revenue
Strong scientific backing of your product or solution (proprietary IP, scientific capabilities, maturity of your product) is the sine qua non of any application. The difference to be accepted into our program will be in your readiness and dedication to go beyond basic research and start prospecting customers.
If this describes you then contact us to obtain the application form to share some of the fundamentals around your science and vision.
We will go through a rigorous, scored interview process to assess mutual fit since we feel it is important to be good partner for the long haul.
Metrics. Methodology. Team.
The program is fully virtual and lasts 4 months for each cohort – a 100% attendance record is mandatory and each month will end with a previously agreed upon milestone based on hard KPIs.
We reserve the right to discontinue our relationship if attendance is lacking or milestones missed.
Members benefit from:
A mutually beneficial relationship

Participation in our program comes with a 5% equity stake in your company. We will also fund you, in milestones, with a $50K commitment (post money valuation of $1M as part of a SAFE).
To ensure strategic alignment between us we will take on Chairmanship of your Board of Directors.
Follow on support
