3. Pump skills (in marketing, analytics, planning, goal setting, etc.)
4. Understand when it makes sense to attract investment
I am the only founder in the startup. Can I enter the program?
Yes, you can apply, but we recommend finding a co-founder who balances the skill set. For example, if you are a strong developer, you should think about adding someone with experience in business, sales or marketing. And vice versa.
And if we need workplaces?
You can take workplaces in UNIT Co-working ( ) or NEST ( ). Just apply via link.
I did not understand the program is free?
The program is free, at the beginning Sector X does not take a share or money in the startup. However, if your startup manages to attract investment during the program or within 6 months after graduation, Sector X takes a small share in the startup or money (of your choice). By the way, if we see the progress of the startup, we will help you attract investment.
Once again, what share or how much money should
be paid if we still attract investment?
4% stake or $ 7,000. Only if the startup attracts funding during the program or within 6 months after the end of the program.

Of course! We love to meet new founders and teams, support the ecosystem
of entrepreneurs. Contact us and we will arrange a time to visit.
When can we expect a response to the application?

Why was our team denied participation in the program?
The accelerator team reserves the right to refuse to participate in the program. The reasons may be different. For example, you do not have a startup or you have too early a stage (there is only an idea and nothing more), etc. We also reserve the right NOT to NAME the reason for the refusal, because its our personal opinion or corporate partners opinion and we do not want to demotivate entrepreneurs with it. You can always ask for more feedback!
What to do if the team is not from Ukraine?
Teams from different countries can take part. Just keep in mind that before you start participating in the program you will need to sign a contract. It can be done remotely, as well as the whole program participation or study courses.
