Betatron is Hong Kong’s newest accelerator programme providing both funding and hands-on mentorship to help optimize and scale startups.
The programme will be run bootcamp style with an intensive schedule focused on the startup’s fundamental KPIs and progress.
It will launch on Monday 13th February 2017 and will take on FIVE startups in their first cohort.
We spoke to the Programme Manager for Betatron, Michael Kerr, to learn more about it.
What type of startups are you looking for?
Our mission over the four-month programme is to make your startup a viable and investable business. For this to occur, we are looking for teams with a developed product that we can work with. Again, we only have four months, so each startup needs to assess whether they feel they are at an appropriate stage. Additionally, our goal is to help the Hong Kong startup ecosystem and back local talent. As such, we aren’t limiting applicants to a specific industry or vertical. If you have a promising product – you can apply!
