FAQ2022

Are we required to be in NYC throughout the program?

Yes, our 2022 program is residential, so we ask that at least ONE of your core team be present physically for the duration of the program. However, it will not be a 24/7 residency. Join our space in New York City with other portfolio companies, receive hands-on support from our team, and get the most out of the startup ecosystem in NYC.

What happens after the program?

We always focus on a long-term partnership, and our supports go beyond the program time. From connecting with new investors to finding key hires, from potential biz dev intros to international partnerships, we will always stand by the founder’s side and come back with more resources and opportunities in the long run.
