Hi Sam: 1) the accelerator is not based in a country. The services are offered online and/or through bootcamps and events. These are offered throughout Europe, amx 2 to 5 days. 2) The funding is is paid in the three phases of the program - 15K, 50K and 152K. 3) see first asnwer, there are no living expenses 4) the complete list is not available yet 5) this call is the first and only call, hence no list of alumni is available. FICHe is a funnel based program and not location based. Because our program starts at the idea and runs all through a field test and investors match, it offers a structured program. The field tests are an important port of the offerings, which in this domain cannot be done in just one month.
Hope this helps!
