Q. When is the next batch?

A. We are now accepting applications for Batch 1. Apply HERE.

Q. Is FUTURES an incubator or an accelerator?

A. It’s neither and both at the same time, but it’s also so much more. FUTURES helps founders manage their startups though a unique program that accelerates the process of finding authentic demand and building a company around it.  The FUTURES program compresses work into 6 month cohorts, and often enables startups to move fast enough to avoid a round of funding.

Q. How is Futures similar to programs I know about?  How is it different?

A. All programs are different and we're no exception; so you tell us:

  • Many teams will apply but only between 5-10 will be selected within each batch
  • Every team receives a $10,000 equity investment from our investment fund
  • We connect teams with mentors who have vast experience in the startup community
  • Teams work in a great, newly renovated space in the West Village (can't beat the location)
  • Each cohort runs six months, culminating with a live investor presentation (aka Demo Day)
  • We are a combination incubator and accelerator.  Incubator because we're focused on nurturing and growing the business from the inside, helping strengthen the core.  Accelerator because we provide robust mentorship throughout with funding opportunities at the end

Q. Can you help us find additional funding outside of FUTURES?

A. Yes. Many active angel investors and venture firms with early stage interests are looking to work with FUTURES teams.
