What is the time commitment?
It's a few hours per week if you participate in all the recommended activities. There are weekly workshops (1-2 hours each) and meetings with mentors and experts. We hope to see you at each workshop but don't keep the score. All parts of the Text Accelerated program are optional. The program aims to give you support and space. We're here to help and support you, not overwhelm you.

What happens at the end?
The program ends with a demo day. We're inviting our partners and customers to this meeting so you can present your product to a broader audience. Besides the demo day, makers should have a refined product ready to launch for the customers.
Do you invest in the projects at the end of the program?
No, in the first edition, we do not invest any money. We're here to share our expertise and kick-start you with the knowledge and expertise we have. Sometimes you don't need money to do this.
I'm actively fundraising or taking part in another program. Can I still apply?
Sure, we're open for startups in each cycle of their life. Join us.
