NEXT is something unique. It's an opportunity to transform your startup. It's for a select group of committed founders who want to take their startup to the next level. Not every team will end the program successfully, but every team will learn valuable lessons for their startup.
NEXT is an intense 5 week program focused on giving you the tools and mentorship needed to guide your team through the challenging early stages of building a startup.
Startups accepted to the program will take part in 3-hour weekly sessions. Through a structured approach of group discussions, mentor sessions and weekly pre-work deliverables, startups walk away with the skills needed to validate your business idea, a clear understanding of your customer development strategy, a completed market and competitive analysis, a MVP and a investor ready pitch deck.
The best teams that attended NEXT will get an opportunity to showcase their startup at the NEXT First Look Forum event after the program. This event is aimed at generating massive exposure for NEXT teams ready to present to a Managing Director of an accelerator or an angel/seed investor.
