Usually at least one and a half month before the deadline, which is usually in June for winter batches and December for summer batches.

The selection happens on ongoing basis. Therefore, if you apply earlier, you will have a better chance of having one-on-one interviews with our partners during time that fits your schedule.

We will notify you of the result and contact you individually to arrange one-on-one interviews within 3 weeks after the application submission deadline. If you haven’t heard from us, please be patient.

On average, we have 2 meetings with each company, and more if required.

We focus on companies in the Internet, online gaming, mobile, e-commerce, digital media, healthcare, IoT and hardware sectors. Typically, we invest in seed or early-stage companies but we are open to any innovative company that exhibits great potential.

First, we look for companies that specialize in certain sector or product because they have higher success rate. Second, we look for innovative companies that have disruptive ideas. Additionally, because of our investment policy, we do not select one-person companies. Your age, gender, and nationality are irrelevant. What matter to us are passion, commitment and execution.

We are willing to invest in companies that generate revenue and received funding as long as the companies are innovative and demonstrate high growth potential.
