1. WHAT KINDS OF STARTUPS IS B-VENTURES LOOKING FOR?
b-ventures is designed to support the growth of angel and seed stage startups which operate in the mobile payment, mobile advertising and mobile content space.
2. WHAT ARE THE SERVICES THAT YOU PROVIDE TO STARTUPS IN THE PROGRAM?
Each of the startup projects inducted into our program are offered regular support by our team of top mentors and skilled professionals. Beyond this, the startup and its team will be entitled to administrative and legal support. For further information, just visit: our program.
3. IF THERE IS ANOTHER STARTUP ALREADY OPERATING A BUSINESS THAT IS SIMILAR TO MY PROPOSAL, WILL I BE EXCLUDED FROM YOUR PROGRAM?
Don’t worry, the presence of a direct competitor will not automatically exclude your project from our screening process. After all, a competitive market is often a good sign; however, if a similar business is already in the program, you will need to convince us of how you will differentiate your business model, target market, functionality or other elements, in order to successfully compete with existing products or services.
4. IF I SUBMIT A PROJECT VIA THE ONLINE FORM, WILL I GET A NOTIFICATION OR FEEDBACK EVEN IF I’M NOT SELECTED?
Unfortunately, due to the high number of application we are not able to guarantee an answer to every applicant. This means that we will only contact the startups that we want to receive more information about.
5. HOW SHOULD I SUBMIT MY PROJECT?
You must use the application form on this page: /our-program. In order to complete your submission you will be requested to attach your presentation. To do this, simply follow the instructions found on the application form page. You can send us a ppt or pdf file containing text and multimedia content, which may include external links to any relevant content. To speed up the process, please use our template: DOWNLOAD TEMPLATE.
6. HOW DOES THE B-VENTURES SCREENING PROCESS WORK?
The screening process begins at the moment that you submit your project using the application form on our website. If your project proposal is selected, you will receive an invitation to attend a b-ventures Pitch Day or one-to-one meeting, where you will be able to pitch your new business idea to our panel of executives and entrepreneurs from around the world. The panel will then choose the finalists who will be invited to enter the b-ventures program.
