How soon will I hear back?
We usually get back to you within a week or two depending on application round. Applicants are accepted on a rolling basis so you will be informed of your acceptance immediately. The total process may take a couple weeks.
Can I do the accelerator alongside work or school?
If you are a full-time student (without break), or work full-time we wouldn’t recommend this. The Accelerator Program is a full-time program. We can work with teams on a case-by-case basis but we will prioritize teams who have the time to commit to their projects.
Should I apply even if Im not confident I meet the criteria?
Yes absolutely, our criteria are very loose and we often make exceptions for exceptional people who often times may not seem much on the surface.
What should I do if I do not have a team?
Applying with a team is a big advantage and we suggest all developers reach out to friends and developers they know to put together some teams. Try to find developers you know well, have a personal connection with or have worked together before and build a team for the long run. Teams that last are usually the teams that do well.
How many people can I apply with?
The more the better, however keep in mind the funding does not scale based on team size and bigger teams tend to be harder to manage.
Do I need to attend in person?
Do I need to be a US citizen to participate?
