Make Connections

Cohort companies will connect with a pool of established mentors and select up to three that are committed to helping develop their product, market fit, and who will provide valuable introductions. Mentors can be brought on in a larger capacity at each company’s discretion.

Additionally, through the course of the 90-day program, you will work alongside likeminded entrepreneurs and innovators as well as meet with a number of investors and advisors along the way.

 

 

Gain Momentum

With the help of your mentors, our Cohorts set milestones and map out a clear path of deliverables-- prototype, building out the next phase of the product and finding customers.
