12 Mar 2017
Each company participating in the programme is offered €120,000 in funding. This is structured in two parts: they invest €20,000 in exchange for 6 percent of the equity and participation in the programme (this is not a valuation event). The investment is obligatory and participating companies have to complete the equity investment.
They also offer a convertible debt note of €100,000 to each company prior to the commencement of the program. Companies can – but do not have to – accept the note.
OTHER KEY DATES
Programme Dates: Jun 12, 2017 - Sep 6, 2017
Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
