What is a Pre-Accelerator?

To get into an accelerator you need to have a prototype/MVP and some customers.

There is no platform to help people who have just an idea, hence we created  this pre-accelerator program to make you accelerate and/or seed investment ready

What is the program Fee?

There is no fee charged and no equity taken

We get our resources from Mentors, volunteers, and sponsors. However, this will be highly curated and only the selected startups will be invited to the program, hence hurry and apply now
