STARTOUT GROWTH LAB GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
At least one founder must be LGBTQ.
Be prepared to move your company into our office in downtown San Francisco. We require all founders to work full-time in the Growth Lab for their entire six month stay.
Have a product or service that has been developed at least to the point of early beta testing or customer acceptance.
Be targeting an opportunity with an addressable market greater than $1 billion.
Be able to identify a specific, valuation-enhancing milestone that you can realistically achieve during your six month tenure.
Have 2 or more co-founders, rather than a sole founder. Co-founders can challenge each other and push each other, often resulting in better decisions and faster progress.
Applications are only accepted during the 3-week application period twice a year
The application includes questions such as:
Who is your target customer?
What problem do you solve for them?
Why are you the right team to solve it?
How will your business generate income?
Describe your progress to date
What major milestone will you achieve while in Growth Lab?
Decisions are announced two weeks after the application period closes.
Accepted company founders must move into Growth Lab and remain for the entire 6 months
