Yes, you most certainly should!
Although our preference goes to teams already in the USA, we’d be happy to assist you through the visa process if your company is selected.
We are looking for early-stage companies in Pre-Seed or raising Seed, with passionate founders who have a clear vision for the future.
We will admit and invest in 10 startups per cohort in 2023.
Can I apply again if I’ve applied before?
Yes, definitely. Please keep in mind that we will be looking forward to hearing about your company’s progress since the previous application.
Yes, our 2023 program is hybrid, 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.
How do I apply for the 2023 program?
You can apply through our direct application form or our F6S page (see Apply Now).
