How it works
We select you purely on talent. Not teams. Not ideas.
The Entrepreneur First Cohort is picked from the best technical individuals across Europe, often computer science and engineering grads from top universities, and also those who are a few years out. You don't need a team or startup idea to apply. We just look for the best people.
Make what you want, with who you want.
For the first three months, we unconditionally fund and support you personally. We help you work on your most ambitious ideas, and to build a co-founding team with other people in the cohort. It doesn't matter if you change what you work on, or who you work with.
Grow your startup and raise funding.
We then invest further in your startup and over three more months push you to grow as quickly as possible. Near the end we host a Demo Day with world class investors, guide you through fundraising, and help you hire your first employees.
Fancy a coffee?
We're always keen to meet interesting people and have a chat about your ideas, the things you're building, and the problems that you're trying to solve.
