Applications consist of a proposal that outlines your idea for a creative business, or tells us how you would apply a new business model to your existing creative practice.
Applications can be in PowerPoint, diagrammatic or video form and should tell us about your proposed business idea / product, and why you are keen to participate.
It doesn’t matter if you are just at the idea stage or already have an existing prototype. Foundry658 will provide you with the tools and information to assist you to test and progress your enterprise. Your application should be submitted through our online application form and must contain:
- A short summary of your project or idea (an elevator pitch)
- A short summary of what makes your business idea unique or different to existing creative businesses
- A succinct pitch proposal about your project or idea in one of the following formats: a PDF of no more than 10 slides OR two pages of pictures, diagrams, flow charts or product market materials OR a five minute (max) video (hosted on Vimeo/YouTube/Dropbox or Google Drive)
There will be a shortlisting process for both Bootcamps and the Accelerator. Shortlisting will take place in the two-week period following the deadline for applications; during that time the Foundry658 team may have follow-up questions and applicants may be invited to an interview with the Foundry658 selection panel, either in person or over Skype. Successful candidates for the Bootcamps will be notified in the third week after applications close.
