HOW CAN I APPLY?
As we have governmental funding our Grow F accelerator program is free and we do not take any equity. Nevertheless, we expect full commitment from our participants. Therefore, we take a down-payment of €1000 in the case of acceptance. We transfer this money back to you when at least one person of your team participated at all touchpoints of the program.
The program will be conducted in English. The application can be in either English or German.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN RUNNING THIS PROGRAM?
The accelerator is running since the beginning of 2019. Before that, Female Founders has also successfully completed startup bootcamps, with earlier staged startups in summer 2017. Here you find our alumnis from batch 1 and batch 2.
HOW IS THIS PROGRAM INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED?
The experts and mentors who are working with the startups in the batch will focus on each business individually and work with you in small groups. This is why you will need to carefully prepare the tasks assigned by the experts.
WILL YOU BE ABLE TO GET ME INTROS TO CORPORATES/INVESTORS?
The Female Founder network consists of countless corporates, business angels, VCs and other important contacts. We will introduce them on an individual basis if this is important for the growth of your business.
WILL THERE BE A DEMO DAY?
Yes there will be a demo day. However: expect no big spectacle or crowd. We will invite a smaller but more relevant crowd to an investors meetup and make sure you talk in depth with all people that are interesting for you.
WHAT ABOUT THE SELECTION PROCESS?
After completing the online application, a Female Founders jury will shortlist a group of startups based on objective criteria We will schedule calls with all shortlisted startups for further clarifications. The acceptance/rejection feedback will be sent out shortly afterwards.
