Program Timeline

We would accept applications from startups until Sept 10th. Soon after, we would announce the startups that are selected for our 1 month equity free accelerator program. This would end with a demo day and from there we would select 6-8 companies to further accelerate. These 6-8 companies would get upto $100K and in exchange we would take 7-10% equity.

FAQs

You have questions, we have answers. A few of the common questions regarding the
Wekan Accelerator are listed below.

Who can submit an application?

The Accelerator is open for anyone to apply. Applicants must have tech-based solutions that are focused on the Future of Work domain. International applicants must be operating in the US or have near-term plans to expand into the US. Startups are generally at the stage of post problem market fit, functional prototype, market-ready, or launched. WeKan will generally not consider submissions that are theoretical designs or limited to ideas on paper.

What criteria will be used to evaluate my application?

Submissions will be evaluated using the following criteria:

Vertical: Future of Work (Communication, Collaboration, productivity, gig economy, automation and workflow builders, low code).

Stage: Pre-seed stage & Post Problem Market Fit (tested it either offline or online).

Market fit: There should be a Founder-market fit.

Location: The startup should be based out of United States & India.

How much do you invest?

We generally have a standard deal - we’ll invest $100K on a post-money safe in return for 7-10% of the company when the safe converts. We take a little more than other accelerators but much lesser than other incubators. We focus on a fewer number of companies, with a more hands-on and long term approach.
