You don’t. But you should. Even though it’s recommended to focus fully on your startup during the acceleration, we understand it might be too early to quit your regular job at this stage. But keep in mind most activities are held on a week days at 10:00 am.
Also just assume no free time during those 10 weeks and weekends busy with work! And yes, we are dead serious here.
That’s entirely up to you! We are going to introduce you to accelerators, business angels and investors who can help you with your next next steps.
Mentors are seasoned entrepreneurs hand-picked by the Reaktor crew.
In short: based on skills, startup requirements and personality match.
Here are the all the ReaktorX startups with contacts to their founders. It’s always best to reach out to them first.
Yes. ReaktorX is 100% remote.
We have already hosted two teams from Kosovo (with all the organizational stuff including visa taken care of), founders from Belarus, Portugal, Italy, USA, UK and Iran, so the program is usually quite international.
The fee is 3990 PLN + VAT (about 899 EURO + VAT).
We believe that by charging each startup a minimal amount for the program, we will be able to filter out people who are not thinking seriously about their business. Building a company is hard work and a huge commitment. We need to be sure you are serious.
What is of equal importance, ReaktorX is a private acceleration program not funded by the European Union, PARP or any other public institution. We are proud to be independent. Because of that we can focus only on the important stuff like getting you though customer development, your MVP, towards a scalable business model and funding to secure future growth of your startup. No paperwork bullshit, only hard work on your company matters.
Yes. The program is run on break even, but we truly believe in our startups, so we need to make sure we have a share in their eventual success.
ReaktorX takes 2% of equity. Additionally, you will be asked to grant 1% of your equity to your lead mentor and future advisor.
Here’s more about those fees and equity as told by Borys Musielak and equity on a video.
The equity is negotiable depending on the stage of your company and we’ve had startups give away less equity and pay more for the program instead.
We organize two batches a year, usually one starts in April and ends in July and the second one starts in November and ends in January.
