So you're interested in the Startup LAunch Program? 🚀
Before we get started, we will need to know about you, your startup and your needs, so that we can assess if you're a fit for our non-equity, no cost mentorship program. Our questionnaire and vetting process helps us, help you. Letting us under the hood early in the process will really help us make better informed decisions regarding your application and potential advisor, so it really is in your best interest to put some serious time and effort into your application.
Please take time to review the application process below. Good luck!
Step 1: Online application
- Part A: Startup LAunch Inquiry The "quick-and-dirty" summary of your startup in an easy form located at the bottom of this page. Complete and submit, then stand by for a confirmation email that will contain links to parts B and C. You should receive this within 24 hours. (Don't see it in your inbox? Double-check your spam folder.)
- Part B: Official Request for Services 641 Aka Bixel's non-disclosure agreement, liability waiver and conflict of interest form.
- Part C: Startup Evaluation An in-depth questionnaire about your venture. This is the most crucial part of your application!
Step 2: Assessment call
After receiving the three parts of your application, we'll carefully review it with our team and determine whether you are a fit for the program. If so, we'll reach out to you via email to schedule a call assessment that will help us gain a better understanding of your needs. (Expect to hear from us within a week of your submission.) And in the event that we are not equipped to assist you, we'll direct you to the most appropriate resources within our community.
Step 3: Advisor assignment
Once you've passed the assessment call and we've determined you're a fit, you will be assigned and connected to a Bixel Exchange advisor within 1 week. Congratulations, and welcome aboard!
