We receive hundreds of applications every cycle in each location. Once all applications have been submitted, our team reviews every application carefully and selects the best applicants to go through bootcamps, and final committee for the selection process. The ones selected are those who will join the program.
In the first month we hold an orientation session to introduce the 4-month program plan to the startups, start the weekly one-on-one sessions, and organize pitch workshops to help the startups enhance their pitches before they present in front of the community during the official cycle opening.
During the second month, startups are introduced to their coaches and mentors who will be helping them through out the cycle, with tailored sessions that will enhance their business operations, marketing efforts and more.
We offer our startups a magnitude of opportunities to introduce their solutions to corporates and investors, who can help them pinpoint where they can improve what they are offering or how a corporate like them could be using their solutions.
Few weeks before the Demo Day, startups make their final rehearsals of their pitches, along with the photoshoots they get for their startups and a recording of their pitches for easy access for investors.
Flat6Labs’ entrepreneurs go through a number of milestones during the training program including the Program Opening, Product Day, the Market day, and the Demo Day, events through which entrepreneurs are able to present their product to a select crowd, receive feedback, network & pitch to potential investors.
After Demo Day, only the best companies move on to receive follow-on funding. Flat6Labs helps teams secure funding by providing them with further assistance with their financials and linking them to more investors. Although teams can no longer work from our office after Demo Day, every startup remains part of the Flat6Labs network with continuous access to our mentor network, support, perks, workshops, and more.
