Participants are expected to arrange their own flights and accommodation for the in-market immersion portion of the program.
What is the time commitment?
There are approximately 10 hours of content spread over 6 weeks, excluding your 1-on-1 advisory sessions.

Participants are also expected to spend their own time outside of the program to complete their market expansion strategy, reach out to prospective partners and customers and to prepare any other materials.

How many team members can participate in this program?
Typically, a company would send one of their co-founders or a senior manager to attend the program. If you would like to involve more colleagues from your company, kindly let us know.
Is this program only for tech companies?
No, this program is open to tech companies and industry peak bodies. If you are unsure if you are eligible, please get in touch.
Do I have to be present for the entire duration of the program?
