We run in 27 cities in 12 countries (this year we are taking admissions into 22 cities) and bring 15-25 entrepreneurs in each city every year. You will be connected to a global network, and get to know Fellows, attend classes and pitch in demo days all over the world.
This year we will count 2,200 Fellows including more than 400 women, who have founded more than 1300 companies that have raised more than $500 million, and include breakthrough and award-winning startups like BrightBytes, Gray Orange Robotics, ixigo, Micello, Momelan, NatureBox, Novira, Runkeeper, Savored (acquired by Groupon), Shareaholic, Ubsersense and Rock My Run. We choose entrepreneurs, not startups, and are complementary to the world leading accelerators & incubators.
Our Fellows have also been a part of world-leading programs such as TechStars, Seedcamp, Excelerate, Rock Health, BluePrint Health, Azure Accelerator, as well as been funded by the world's leading venture capital funds.
We are a not for profit with a simple mission. We help you for just the cost of being in our program. We take no equity. But we ask you to make one promise: that you will use your knowledge, wealth or resources to help those who cannot help themselves in your lifetime.
Our network and education materials are for life, and the experience is transformational.
