Applications are now open for Cohort #5

We’re excited to announce that applications are now officially open for our next Cohort.

It promises to be our biggest one yet, as we’ll be increasing the investment amount given to each startup up to US$150,000.

In addition to that, we’ll also be changing the program length. Our previous programs have lasted for four months, however, starting with Cohort #5, we will be condensing the same program into three months.

We believe that reducing the program length while keeping the same amount of content/value, will ensure it is even more intense and adds additional accountability to provide each startup with the maximum acceleration possible.

The objective of the program will largely remain the same. However, it will have even more focus on business growth and fast-tracking our startups to raise their next funding round.
We will continue to leverage our extensive network to support each of our companies along their journey.

The Investment
Betatron will be investing up to US$150,000 in each startup.
We will provide your startup with free office space for the duration of the three-month program in Hong Kong.
Our network allocates hundreds of hours of hands-on mentorship and support for each startup.
