WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REGULAR COHORT AND A VIRTUAL COHORT?

The only difference is whether you plan to participate in person vs participating virtually, otherwise, the program is the same for everyone. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all programs are virtual until further notice.

WHERE IS THE COHORT LOCATED?

We are located in the heart of the Silicon Valley in Santa Clara, CA. However, due to COVID-19 all founders will participate virtually until further notice.

Not at this time, though we may invest in qualified startup(s) after the end of each cohort.

WILL THERE BE A DEMO/PITCH NIGHT?

One week after completing the program, we set aside a night for our founders to pitch their companies. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily paused the pitch night until further notice.

WILL YOU SIGN AN NDA?

No, though we are committed to an informal confidentiality agreement on your idea and application.
