Why do I have to apply? The application is very simple... just a bit of information about you and your project. The final decision will be made after an interview with the betaFACTORY team.
What types of companies can apply? We love all types of startups. We've invested in children's iPad apps, shipping analytics, e-commerce platforms, accounting software. Unless you need a large amount of capital to build an oil rig, chances are your startup could benefit from betaFACTORY.
What are you looking for in a startup? Our years of experience dealing with startups can be broken down to one key feature... the team. We invest in people, and we trust those people to make a great company. We love business models that can scale easily. We love products that solve real problems. We love markets that are ripe for disruption. But unless you have the right team, a startup isn't worth anything.
Do you give office space? betaFACTORY will provide office space for your team during the 100-day program. You can keep your existing office, but we ask that you spend enough time at our office to meet mentors and attend events.
