Who we are looking for

We understand that no 2 accelerators are the same. It is important that you get value out of a program that can take you to the next level.

So here are some tips to guide you in considering if you could be a good fit to our network.

  • Our geographic coverage is South East Asia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea Europe, USA.
  • You must have a working MVP with good customer validation proof.
  • We expect some revenue generated which could include paid pilots.
  • Intellectual property and/or founders with relevant sector experience is a big plus.
  • We are gender and sector agnostic. We accelerate B2B and B2C differently.

How we do it

Ask anyone who have been to any part of our program and they will confirm it’s a productive experience.

Closed door intimacy

All our sessions are closed door so only relevant people are in the room. C-sharks are C-suite executives from global MNCs from diverse sectors who have worked in various regions.

All our sessions are interactive, not pre-recorded. We allow for ample time for VCs and C-sharks to personally engage you.

Deep Dive & Evaluation report

Some might say this is our crown jewel. We deep dive and work alongside you helping you think through your go-to-market strategy, business model and financial projections, just to name a few.

The evaluation report (accessible only by C-sharks) has equipped C-sharks to ask targeted, helpful questions to better assess your investability. Cluster dating in smaller groups with about 40 C-sharks each season has heightened the insights of the participating startups, unparalleled by other programs.

Top Up

C-sharks commit cash upfront without knowing who is coming to pitch. Once the final 5 startups have been picked, we open the room to other angel investors to top up as C-sharks top up as well.

Connections

We are highly effective and time efficient in the way we pace our process, giving ample time where it matters and not overwhelming founders with blanket sessions or irrelevant connections. Because of our track record, VCs, mentors and C-sharks take our connections seriously. We save you time in knocking on doors that might not easily open.
