Each year cohort themes are announced in the fall, applications are accepted through late winter and selected teams are announced in the Spring! Interested? Provide us with the following information and we’ll let you know when applications open:

Applications are evaluated on four criteria:

  1. Alignment (30%): The proposed initiative will further advance efforts to solve the problem OR at least one of the outcome areas of the selected cohort theme.
  2. Potential for Impact (25%): The proposed initiative has demonstrated that it is truly addressing the problem. You have evidence that demonstrates your solution is better than what’s been done before or what’s currently being done by others to address the problem.
  3. Potential for Scale (25%): The proposed initiative has the potential to scale up. There is evidence of interest from outside stakeholders to scale.
  4. Potential for Catalytic Investment (20%): The proposed innovation would significantly benefit from participation in the labs, boot camp and pitch event, being matched with mentors and pro bono support
