APRIL 30 – JUNE 15
It all starts with your online application and at each phase, we will assess the fit between the startups and the program in order to invite those that can clearly benefit the most from collaborating with The Journey Partners. The top 40 scores will enter into a remote pitch session and the best 20 startups will move forward.
We’ll be looking for:
- Match between startups solutions and Partners needs;
- How the Partners can provide and retrieve value;
- Product readiness for pilot development;
- How solid the business model is;
- Growth potential and scalability;
- The complementarity of skills within the team;
- How the product delivers value;
JULY 9 – SEPTEMBER 7
Corporate and startup pre-match for both parties to take the most out of the Bootcamp. Traveling arrangements.
SEPTEMBER 10 – SEPTEMBER 13
The Top 20 startups will be invited to join the one-week Bootcamp benefiting from learning about business model innovation, startup methodologies and tools, get additional product validation, define the value proposition and a business case to present to the Partners. The best startups will have the opportunity to work together with one or more Partners in developing a pilot.
SEPTEMBER 17 – NOVEMBER 20
The 10 selected startups that are going to be part of the accelerator will enjoy 8 weeks of close collaboration with the Partners. These startups will also benefit from the access to Partner’s collaborators and mentors in the program, together with Beta-i’s network.
NOVEMBER 20 (TBC)
This is D Day. All the finalist startups will be presenting their solutions. It will be a public event where you will find potential investors, media, Partners and Beta-i representatives, among other invited guests from the tourism industry.
