Admission Info

Admissions Committee

Our admissions team consists of 100-150 Fellows are actively involved in scoring and deciding whom to admit.


Admissions Process

Round 2 of applications are open August 1- August 15 (Note: Dates differ by city so please check the application) . We expect that potential candidates will make the effort to meet Fellows in our community either at one of our public events or by reaching out directly. In the case where this is not possible, we will make every effort to schedule an in-person or Skype meeting with the candidate. Each application is read and scored by two global Fellows, the local Chapter Program Team, and approved by the Head of Admissions.


Criteria

Unlike incubators, we do not judge the quality of your startup. Instead we focus on YOU. What matters to us is that we only choose very high-caliber individuals. Within this, we look at leadership, entrepreneurial or innovation experience, potential for success in the startup ecosystem, willingness to be an active member of the community, and cultural fit with our values. We believe diversity is critical to the best educational and innovative environments.


Admits & Admit Rates

We take between 15 and 25 Fellows in each chapter. Our admit rate averages between 20-30% in past years.


Apply in several languages

You can apply in seven languages:

  • English
  • French
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Traditional Chinese
