Get ready for an exciting journey! The Ideation phase kicks off on Oct 23, 2023, and runs for 2 weeks until Nov 5, 2023. Following that, the Incubation phase begins on Nov 13, 2023, lasting for 6 weeks until Dec 22, 2023.
To make the most of this immersive experience, all participants should join us in person at the vibrant Attic42 Hub in Belgrade, Serbia. If there are many applications for the online journey, we will run a separate track for these founders.
Join us at Attic42 Hub, located at Žorža Klemansoa 19, Belgrade, Serbia. You can easily find us on Google maps.
Good news, it’s free to participate!
The Ideation phase costs 3.000€ per participant, and for the Incubation phase, it’s 20.000€ per accepted founding team (idea). Both costs are fully covered by Attic42 and our generous program partners.
During this phase, founders come together, form connections, and passionately craft their future product. They will be identifying the problems, for whom they are building, and the innovative ways to solve the problem.
In the Incubation phase, the founding teams put their hypotheses and business models to the test. They’ll determine the scope of their Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and lay the groundwork for fundraising success.
The Incubation phase concludes with an opportunity for teams to present their ideas to the Attic42 Investment Committee, comprising both Attic42 partners and external investment professionals. Successful teams receive investment from Attic42 and progress to the Acceleration phase (3 – 4 months), where their goal is to launch their MVP to the market.
Yes, indeed! Attic42 is laser-focused on the web3 industry.
Your journey as a founder begins with unwavering dedication. Building your business is a full-time commitment, and we expect you to be fully present and focused throughout these programs.
If you are employed at the moment in another full-time position and are not yet prepared to dedicate yourself exclusively to your startup venture, we have tailored the program schedule to accommodate your dual responsibilities for a limited period.
Not at all! We intake all applications for the entirety of the program, however if you have a mature idea, a formed team, and believe you will not benefit from the Ideation phase, we will assess your application to enroll directly into the Incubation phase.
If your idea is still taking shape or needs validation, the Ideation phase is the perfect fit. If you already have a defined idea and a founding team, you can go for the Incubation phase. There, you’ll plan, validate, and set the foundation for engaging with investors while creating an MVP roadmap.
Absolutely! The Ideation phase is designed to shape your existing idea, receive valuable feedback, find potential co-founders, and get ready to ace the Incubation phase.
Yes, you can! We welcome founding teams to apply together. During the Ideation phase, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with other talented founders as well.
If you progress to the Acceleration phase, we’ll invest in your future success and take 5% equity in your company for our previous involvement. Any subsequent investments from us (starting from the Acceleration phase) will be treated as a SAFE investment.
After the Ideation phase, we ask for a six-month exclusivity period. During this time, we request that you refrain from engaging in any investment negotiations with other parties without our prior consent. This ensures that we have the opportunity to be your first investor, having invested our time and resources in you. However, if we decide not to invest in your business after the Incubation phase, you are free to seek investments from other sources.
As a partner, you play an essential role in shaping the program. You’ll have the chance to nominate problems and directions for founders to work on during the Ideation phase. Additionally, you can actively participate in the program through mentorship and serve on the Investment Committee.
Becoming a partner is simple and rewarding! To participate, you need to cover part of the program costs. Here are the minimums:
For the Ideation phase: Support 10 founders with 30.000€
For the Incubation phase: Back 3 promising business ideas with 60.000€
