Every day is a working day. There are no holidays. Every day that you are NOT working on your startup is a day lost. 2-3x a week there will be mandatory events for all the teams. These range from our mandatory roundtable dinner sessions, workshops, prototype days, and so on. You can utilize our co-working space or feel free to work wherever you feel most comfortable. All we ask is that you show up to our mandatory events.
We are looking for early-stage companies with passionate founders who have a clear vision for the future.
No, on both counts. However, we do have a strong preference for two- to three-person teams, one of whom should be a strong technical co-founder.
Yes, you most certainly should!

Please note that we cannot provide visas, so they will be your responsibility if you’re accepted to the program.
Cross-border Acceleration
Our extensive international connections make us a bridge between the US and Asia, giving founders access to large and rapidly developing markets.

Long Term Partnership
We are devoted partners looking to build fruitful and supportive relationships with founders beyond the accelerator program period.

Tailored Approach
We tailor our investors, mentors, and guidance specifically for every portfolio company. What matters most to us is that we help you create a positive and valuable societal impact.
Our application can be found on F6S and AngelList.

Most of our portfolio companies are software or software-related in some way, and are either B2B or B2C focused. That said, we have invested in hardware companies and are also on the lookout for some blockchain and AI-focused companies.
Yes, our program is residential so we ask that your core team be present in NYC for the duration of the program. Very rarely do we give exceptions.
No, we do not.
