We work with technologies from the earliest stage. To be accepted, you should have a good idea and a strong founding team, but more work to do on your market validation, prototyping, backend infrastructure, and fundraising.



3. Growth

Bd, sales and marketing help to early scalability

Personal data, IoT, and FinTech

Our startups leverage HAT technology to prototype quickly, so that they can validate their market with early traction. Businesses leveraging personal customer data are able to build compliant, privacy-preserving apps quickly and easily.



4. Funding

Raise-readiness, introductions and investment

how it works

You will be given a dedicated mentor to help you rapidly prototype and validate your idea. Then we will leverage this early traction to recruit an advisory board and raise a Seed round of financing.
