Who is Eligible?
Students, recent graduates and faculty from accredited universities around the world.
How We Make Decisions
We assess each application on eight dimensions. What matters most is the impact of your idea, who is on your team and how thoughtful you have been about your business model. The eight dimensions include:
- Business Planning
- Market Development
- Customer Development
Each dimension is as important as the other in building a company, but early on during the application process, we put more emphasis on Idea, Team and the business model aspect of Business Planning.
What is the timeframe?
50 teams will be invited to this year’s class. Our second application cycle deadline was February 28, 2016. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis – slots are filled as applications come in. The one year program begins with the World Founder Forum in June 2016.
