Our friends at Spacecubed are holding a scholarship program for young entrepreneurs and those looking to start up. It is designed to help those in the early stage of idea development. Every three months a group of entrepreneurs is selected to use Spacecubed to rapidly move their idea forward and gain access to Spacecubed’s networks, community, mentors, and space.
The scholarship is designed to give your project a kick start by providing you with access to co-working space in Spacecubed, free mentoring, and access to 450 members of the Spacecubed community.
Each application will be judged on:
- the commercial viability of the idea
- how disruptive and innovative the idea is
- whether your startup has been validated
- your motivation and determination
- adequate time to work on your startup
There are 6 available scholarships:
