Hi, I hope you don't mind answering a few questions.

How many people/teams do you accept into the program?

Can you tell us more about the 25k pitch opportunity? Like, how many of the teams get this funding? What is the criteria for being awarded the grant?

Thank you!

Great, thank you very much for the information. It has been most helpful. Another question, I am currently in the Startup Chile program, which is very similar. A government grant which "reimburses" $42k USD. We have to spend the money and then submit our receipts to get it reimbursed a month and a half later. It's a very tedious process and stifles our focus as an entrepreneur. Is it the same for Tech Peaks? Is it reimbursed or is it just a complete cash grant deposited into your account?

Hello Adam, no in TechPeaks once a team / startup is created here and get the 25k, we help them open a company here (it could be also just for the 6 months) and TechPeaks will deposit on the Company account the 25k cash. The team/startup with the name in the company will be then responsible for using the cash. I hope I clarified!
