Applicants meeting the criteria will be asked to submit a video entry for the 2nd round of evaluations. Those passing the 2nd round would proceed to a final round with a panel interview featuring IdeaSpace staff, mentors, and partners.
The selected startups will participate in the six-week pre-acceleration program, after which they will pitch to a select group of judges for a chance to take part in the four-month acceleration program.
The call for applications opens only once a year. We encourage teams fitting the criteria to apply for the program for a chance to join our growing network of high-potential startups.
