TEST TRACK: If you have a general sense of the idea you want to pursue, but are still in the early stages of brainstorming and testing solutions, you will start on our Test Track. With the support of a pod of Creators coached by a mentor, you will conduct market research, prototype, test and pivot.
FAST TRACK: If you have been working on your venture prior to the program and are ready to acquire customers, test a high-fidelity prototype or seek funding, you will start on our Fast Track. Your team will be paired 1:1 with a mentor who has expertise relevant to your needs.
