SparkLabs Frontier’s first stage will accept 100 people into the initial stage of idea and team development. Ideally targeting ⅔ engineers and 1/3 business people.
Through rigorous team and leadership exercises, we will help them find co-founders and help them further development of an idea.
This second stage of the program will have finalized teams focused on development of their idea to prepare to apply to the Frontier accelerator program. Those without a team will be dropped from the program.
This final stage and start of the core accelerator program will accept 6-10 teams. They will go through a 4 month mentor-driven accelerator program.
SparkLabs will invest $100,000 into each new company for up to 8% of the company. There will be an anti-dilution provision during the next round of financing.
