  • Growth Program

    The Growth Program is a virtual three-month post-acceleration program focused on growth.

     

    The program is designed to help startups build a growth team and implement a growth methodology in order to support scaling up the venture and raise Series A and beyond.

     

    We have mastered the technique of organising an entire acceleration program virtually. So, rather than taking you out of your market, we bring the expertise to you so that you may remain close to your customers and your team.

    • Timeline

      1. Application & Screening

      Applications are open until October 23, 2020, until which startups that fit the criteria can submit their application.

      2. Selection

      The acceleration program team will conduct online and face-to-face interviews with the pre-selected startups before the final selection, which will be announced by end of November, 2020.

       

      3. Kick-off Webinars

      The Program kicks off with an intensive week of webinars with the main goal to define clear OKRs, setting up tools and building the foundation for growth.
