If you have already founded a company,

you must exhibit the DNA necessary to drive your company to success.



If you have a company, you are not required to demonstrate any annual revenue, official structure or office yet, however you must have a solid idea/invention to build on.

Who we are looking for

You must either still be a student or have just completed your education,
with proof of positive academic results.




You must be curios, smart, active, hard-working, and accept that mistakes
