Frequently Asked Questions
What happens at the end of the Accelerator Program?
I don't have a team. Can I still apply?
Does Rocket Seeder take any equity in my startup?
How much does this Accelerator program cost?
It's completely FREE! But we do expect all our participants to 1—commit fully to the Program and 2—to give back to the community. It takes a village to build a business, so we believe in paying-it-forward & sharing your own experiences with the next generation of founders.
Do all the founders of the business have to attend the entire program?
At least one founder of the business MUST attend and participate in our intensive 3-6 month program as well as core program events. However, we encourage all founders in the business to take part and join in, as long as it benefits you and your business!
I have other commitments I also need to attend to, do I have to be working on this full time?
Apart from attending the mandatory program dates, we expect founders to spend at least an additional 8 hours per week on your business, throughout the duration the program. Hence, working full-time in another job while you complete the program is not an option.
Who do I contact if I have a question regarding the application form?
Please contact Emma Coath, Managing Director of Rocket Seeder via email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Can you apply to the Rocket Seeder with just an idea or very early-stage offering?
Ideally, applicants will have launched and/or have an MVP or early-stage customers. But we accept businesses at all stages, so if you have a groundbreaking idea, have defined the problem you are trying to solve and have identified a solution, we'd love to hear from you!
