How it works

Highly Demanding, Highly Rewarding.

The Team

The intense 3-Month acceleration program is designed to educate, inspire and support entrepreneurs.  

Before The Program

Online Application

We open application twice a year at the beginning of the academic school year.
The application process starts with an online form to apply to the IDC's entrepreneurship club.
When applying, make sure you answer the questions thoroughly and honestly, It's our only form of communication for the first part of the
screening process, and your chance to tell us as much as you can about
yourself, your venture, and your team.

Selection days

Out of the ventures who applied we choose the top 20 most promising
and invite them to pitch in front of our mentors at our selection days
for a chance to join Momentum!
During selection days, the top 20 selected ventures are asked to prepare a
5-minute pitch, which they will pitch in front of a select group of our mentors and alumni. You should definitely be prepared to answer whatever questions our mentors and alumni may have.
Momentum's main consideration when choosing startups - is the team,
and the people in it, which is why we also enforce a strict 2 person minimum per team. 
Out of the 20 ventures who pitched at selection days, 10 will be selected to join Momentum!

During The Program

3 Months, around the clock.

Once the 10 ventures have been selected, its time to get to work. 
During Momentum's12 official sessions (and many more unofficial ones) our selected ventures participate in unique and engaging lectures, workshop and classes designed to enrich, grow and develop a strong entrepreneurial foundation, heavily anchored within the Lean Startup methodology.
After covering the basics, the startups meet our mentors for the first time at our Mentor Speed dating event - and from there, are free to connect, collaborate and engage our Mentors in order to grow their ventures in the right direction.
Momentum puts extra emphasis on the Validation phase of the startup's life-cycle, and we constantly encourage our startups to double-check their assumptions, connect with their customers, and face the facts.  
In addition to our extensive curriculum and selection of mentors, our chosen startups enjoy numerous benefits from our partners and sponsors - ranging from pro-bono legal consultation to discounted software and server space.

After The Program

Join The community!

The momentum community of Alumni is an inseparable part of Momentum and an active part of the program throughout its sessions.
We continue to support our ventures long after they have graduated the program using tailored mentorship, targeted connections and specific help with whatever they may need to grow and scale their ventures further.
Additionally, our graduated ventures enjoy unprecedented access to leading VCs and angel investors from many and varied industries.
