Interview

You will receive an email from Falak Startups to notify you if your company has been selected for an initial interview. Once we get in touch, we’ll schedule a face-to-face interview to evaluate your team and discuss your business, market and growth strategy.

Bootcamp

After the interview, we will select the top candidates to attend a 3 days bootcamp, where you will have the chance to work on your business model, growth strategy, financials, pitching, and develop specific skills that will help your business. The bootcamp will be the final selection stage, and we will evaluate your startup and the team based on our communicated selection criteria and your investment brief.

Investment Committee

Our investment committee (IC) is composed of internal stakeholders and external industry and investment experts. You’ll get the chance to pitch your startup in front of this distinguished panel and qualify for the acceleration program.

6-month program

Congratulations, you made it! Now the real work begins as your company joins Falak Startups’ 6-month acceleration program. You will be based out of our co-working space and get the hands-on mentorship and growth hacking you need before Demo Day.
