And now… What?
Tell us more about you and your start-up by applying below. Our team will assess your selection into the program. We are offering you the chance to start the program in October 2021, or February 2022.
We will review all the applications and we will select 120 start-ups to participate in this edition of the program.
If selected, you will be invited to an onboarding to the program and session on how to select your mentor, how to use the incubation platform, its methodology and much more.
Start the structured online incubation with weekly activities and mentorship sessions. You will have 3.5 months to complete the full Bridge for Billions incubation cycle and obtain your final Business Plan in PDF format.
Our online platform allows entrepreneurs to experiment, research, and document their ideas step by step so that at the end of the program they can download their own business plan in PDF.
The more time you’re able to put in, the better the results! We’ve structured the program so that you should be able to complete all activities within 6 to 8 hours per week (including a 1h video call with your mentor), but there are always opportunities for you to go deeper and spend more time on each stage to significantly develop and validate your ideas. If you can’t commit to at least 6 hours per week over 3.5 months, this probably isn’t the program for you. You can also divide some of the work with other people on your team (if any).
You will need to be able to use a laptop or desktop computer (not tablet or smartphone) and preferably one of these browsers: Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox. We expect you to have a strong, reliable internet connection both for your online work on the platform and to participate in the mentors calls via video conference.
Bridge for Billions and Visa have partnered with the goal of bringing high-quality entrepreneurial support to African-American and black women entrepreneurs in the US.
We believe that only by providing this program at no cost, we are truly supporting you to unleash your potential and create your solution.
