We welcome only the most innovative, high-potential companies that can benefit from our resources and extended network. As a rule, we strive to foster a collaborative space and build a highly engaged community that represents a rich variety of sectors and industries.
If you have any questions about the application process, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll contact you to review your business and decide whether you're ready and/or applicable to pitch. How long this takes is dependent on where you are with your business. We sometimes ask that you finesse your application and provide you with the resources to help.
Pitch sessions happen at least once a month. You'll be notified within two weeks if you're accepted.
DMZ members will have access to a tailored suite of services, from legal help to a network of best-in-class mentors in sales, pitching, fundraising, investing, and more - in a dynamic and vibrant community which fuels startup success.
Applications for the DMZ’s growth accelerator are available only three times a year. We’ll invite only the most-promising teams to apply, participate in interviews and then ultimately join our growing ecosystem. Once accepted, you and your team will spend four months building a dedicated sales team and scaling your business.
