Frequently Asked Questions

How do you assess the applications?

The selection process involves experts from our partners, as well as from Fairforce. We assess your team, technology, market, the potential for collaboration with our partners, and your traction

What size startups are you looking for?

We’re looking for startups that already have a technology, but are still flexible in how they make their business model scalable.

You’re too late if your team is dozens of people and you’re planning on sending your sales reps to partner meetings instead of the founders.

You’re too early if you only have an idea, you’re missing a product and/or you haven’t put your idea in front of real customers yet.

We fit more than one of the themes: should we pick one, or apply to both?

When you do the application (only once), we’ll consider you for all the themes at the same time.

I don’t have a team or a company, but I’d still like to apply. What should I do?

We’re looking for teams, but one of the best things in Fairforce is that we can help you find one.

Fill in your application and let’s talk!

What does it mean to participate in the accelerator?

You commit to actively taking part of the meetings with our partners and the remote workshops during the 14 week program. And you also need to be committed to building a great startup!

What do you mean with “remote accelerator”?

There is no physical location for the program. We will run the meetings online, and set you up for online meetings with our partners and other potential customers. We may organize additional physical events in the future for startups willing to participate.

Do you invest in startups?

Yes we may.

But the best thing of being part of Fairforce is that you might not need it, since you can get all sorts of services in exchange for shares. And the final decision to take the investment is on your side.
