An initial meeting will be set up to review the business model as well as the current status of the company. This opportunity will also be used to understand the leadership team better.
Selected companies will then pitch to the YSpace team followed by due diligence
Pitch sessions take place on a rolling basis. You’ll be notified within two weeks after the pitch of your application status.
Once accepted, companies will be offered a two-month membership, with access to resources and support
