Hard work deserves reward. For 3 months, start-ups in the JIC STARCUBE programme do not stop, not even for a moment. Therefore, in cooperation with our partners, we have prepared an appropriate “package” of benefits.
This year we are opening the 8th run of the JIC STARCUBE accelerator for 10 technology start-ups from around the world. An intensive 3-month programme is waiting for the teams, as is also, access to benefits from our partners. This year their total value exceeds 240 thousand dollars.
And we still have not included the more than 1 000 benefits with a total value of almost 650 thousand dollars, which start-ups gain through registering via the f6s.com portal. This is a precondition for registering for the JIC STARCUBE 2016.
Check out what benefits are just waiting for your start-up.
