FAQ

How do I know if my startup is a good fit for the program?

We look for early stage, pre-seed, pre-revenue startups that are currently raising or about to raise funding. We like to see a developed prototype or solution which has been validated, and ideally early traction.

Do we need to be incorporated and which countries do you accept applications from?

You don’t have to be incorporated when you apply. But you have to incorporate by the first masterclass.

For the Zurich program we mainly look for startups coming from the DACH region, UK, US, and Europe. If you are incorporated in any other country, you can still apply, but you may need to reincorporate in one of the before-mentioned countries to be accepted into the program.

For the Singapore program: we mainly focus on startups coming from Singapore, South Korea, India, Australia, and New Zealand. For startups coming from other countries in the region, for example Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, Thailand, Hong Kong, we are happy to receive your application, but please be prepared to reincorporate in one of primarily mentioned countries in order to be accepted into the program.

For questions regarding the locations please contact the scouting team directly at scouting@f10.global
