Yes, but we require physical presence for all bi-weekly meetings or as may be requested for each month during the program. If there is any reason for not meeting this requirement, you will have to let the program manager know in time.

We try our best to notify applicants at least 2- 3 weeks before the program starts. Meanwhile, follow us on social media to keep up with updates and activities.

We are most interested in idea- to early-stage companies.
