Applications are now open and will be accepted up to June 30, 2013.
Based out of Waterloo, Hyperdrive is a three month incubator program with a global focus to seed, fund and grow new businesses.
The program is open to all early-stage technology startups from anywhere in the world, but teams must locate to Waterloo, Ontario for the entire 3-month duration of the program.
Hyperdrive starts with a rigorous three-month sprint in which companies focus on validating their markets and acquiring customers. They then spend nine months refining their businesses and building sales channels, followed by 12 months of scaling up operations. Throughout the entire program, companies have access to Hyperdrive’s network of more than 140 mentors, including on-site executives-in-residence.
The deadline for applications is May 31, 2013
