Admission & assessment

In our incubator, we have room for only 8 to 12 startups. Hence, we have a strict selection procedure. All Applications Deck are assessed by our three-member admissions committee using a traffic light system. Each slide (excluding slide 'name startup') is marked red/orange/green and additional feedback is given by the admissions committee. With predominantly green, you are admitted to the programme, with predominantly orange, an additional interview will take place and with predominantly red, we unfortunately cannot admit the startup. The feedback given by the committee will be shared with the entrepreneurs in all cases.

Please note that at both green and orange, we may impose additional requirements as part of the admission process. For example, you may need to further develop parts of your startup or build an initial prototype before the programme starts, in order to be eligible for admission to 10K.

Finally, you can only submit 1 idea per semester!

Please note! Registration is open until 2 February 2024
