Timeline of the challenge
Phase 1: Application Phase/Sourcing
(January 19th, 2017 – March 25th, 2018)
In order to take part in the challenge, you need to register on the platform and fill in the two different documents. Please find here (download) the provided template for your business deck.
Keep in mind that this first phase is only to address the innovativeness of your idea, therefore no financials are needed at this point. Also, industry-related metrics are not mandatory as they will be provided by Immochan’s mentor to the selected start-ups in the second phase.
Feel free to add videos or mock-ups describing your project. However, you should focus on the completion of the executive summary, the latter being necessary to confirm your application.
