Frequently Asked Questions

Faq Market Fit
What type of companies generally do you work with?
We work with companies that are led by entrepreneurs who are in the tech space across any industry vertical. Our programs are adapted depending if you are a small business owner or a startup founder. Typically the earliest stage a startup enters is when they have a product fit and gained some traction in their home market.
Do you take any equity?
We do not take any equity. We do not ask participating startups to give up any ownership. We would much rather invest in your next round of funding. We also do not take any commission on sales proceedings during or after any meetings that we create for you during the course of the program.
Do I need to speak English?
As the program will be taught in English, we recommend that at least one of the team members has a strong understanding of English.
Do you provide funding?
Not at this present time. However, we hope to provide funding in the very near future. We do leverage our connections in the investment community to provide our startups with direct access to funding.
Can you generate leads for us?
Whilst naturally this may occur as we connect you with mentors, experts and advisors in your industry, we do not actively go out and do lead generation for your company.
Are you a marketing agency?
No, we are not a marketing agency, we do have a range of partners who we can connect you with to help with your marketing needs.
