No, there are no joining or participation fees for startups to join this accelerator programme.
By joining the programme, your startup has the chance of being selected for an investment during the programme which requires commitment as well as a series of follow on investments afterwards which are optional.
Startups graduating will be given opportunities for follow-on funding at the end of the program. For startups that did not make it through the Corporate Accelerator, they can always apply for funding through our Startup Fund.
This depends on the niche target markets of the Startups, and if the market sizes are big enough. We try as hard as possible to avoid situations where our Startups compete unless there are remedies. Because we have many investors, we are also able to find different investors to make the investment instead.
As the time commitment for our Corporate Program is minimal, Startups are expected to participate in all of the workshops/mentorship/Entrepreneurs Programme meetings as well as the submission of documents/information throughout the program to ensure it is run efficiently
