How to Apply

First Step: Applicants must first register with the system from here.

Second Step: Once logged in, select My Applications in the top left corner, and choose an application form the list of currently open programmes.

Third Step: The application process has two stages:

Stage 1

In Stage 1, you briefly tell us about yourself and your innovation. It should take about 30 minutes to complete. If the idea is suitable for the type of the support we offer and you are a good fit for the programme, we will invite you to complete a stage 2 application.

– This stage does not assess how good the idea is, but whether it is suitable for our programme.

Stage 2

The Stage 2 application is more detailed and will consider how good the idea is, and your potential to lead a start-up. You will need to provide more information about yourself, the technology and the business model. This part of the application will be reviewed by a panel of experts and, if successful, you will be invited to interview.

Fourth Step: invited to interview.
