Stage 2 – ACCELERATION (October 15, 2023 – November 14, 2023) mirrors the program structure of Stage 1, however at a more advanced level with a sharper focus on achieving product-market fit and facilitating early-stage scaling. The emphasis will be on close collaboration with mentors and domain experts, who will play a pivotal role in fostering the startups’ growth and development.

Stage 3 – INVESTMENT READINESS (November 15, 2023 – December 14, 2023) is designed to prepare companies for investment opportunities, enhance their visibility, and establish connections with potential investors.
