Frequently Asked Questions
AIncubators and accelerators are often regarded as interchangeable. However, there is a distinct difference between the two.
An incubator’s goal is to prevent external forces from destroying a company. Rather than accelerating a business, they give it a stable environment. They build the foundations in which a company can grow by providing office space, discounted services, Wi-Fi and much more.
An accelerator’s mission is to increase the speed in which a company develops. Instead of building walls, they provide an accelerant. This includes a small investment of capital ($25k – $150k) and connections to mentors.
AOur cohorts run twice a year (Fall and Spring) online. Our 3-month program includes mentorship, networking, fundraising, go-to-market, beta, pilot, and legal sessions.
AWe provide an immense amount of value to our cohort companies. We’ve created fair and reasonable terms that we do NOT negotiate. As of now, we offer our investments for 5% of equity in a company.
AThe 5G mobile cellular communications system provides an advanced level of performance. It’s not just the ‘next’ version, but a highly evolved technology vastly different than its former generations.
The creation of 5G technology was driven by ad applications. It provides ubiquitous connectivity for applications like automotive communications, remote control (with haptic style feedback), large video downloads and low data rate applications.
A5G Technology includes:
- High resolution and bi-directional large bandwidth shaping
- Gathering of networks on one platform
- Subscriber supervision tools
- Large broadcasting data in Gigabit (supports more than 60,000 connections)
- Easy manageability with previous generations
- Support of heterogeneous services (including private networks)
- Consistent global connectivity
