HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
The Momentum program accepts 8-10 exceptional teams in each semester-long batch. Our goal is to help our entrepreneurs grow and build successful businesses.
The program consists of weekly sessions in which entrepreneurs undergo professional masterclasses and workshops covering different topics (Fundraising, Legal, Finance, Sales etc).
Most importantly, participating entrepreneurs meet on a weekly basis with the Program Mentors, in their own flexible times.
