No. We are an experimental program, so we will still not provide any money investment to the projects we are accelerating. We share our knowledge and time with you, and we help you to be focused and on track with your project. The most promising teams can be introduced to our network of investors.

After the program, to do a step forward we will offer to all the participants some premium services to accelerate their business.
