We love to be surprised!

When making an application

Getting more than 500 applications a year, we know a thing or two about bluffs and sincerity. So stay honest in your answers in your application, its okay to not know all the answers, but its not okay to blow things out of proportion. The more honest and real you are, the more attractive you become. Did you do something amazing in your past? Have a doctor in the team? Got a hospital working with you? Have an unfair advantage over others? Make it shine. Tell us why you deserve a space in the top 10. You need to be ready to support us in our goal of 100% funding rate for this years program and building real companies with real revenue and serious international growth. In return, we ask for 6% equity. We don't take board seats, and we don't get preferred shares. All contracts are simple, transparent, and available for all to see.
