This is a selective process. Our executive team will review your application, paying particular attention to your team, your technology and the market opportunity.
Please understand that if you are unable to tell us about the problem you solve, who you solve it for and the market you serve, then we are unable to help you. You should be able to do this without disclosing your “secret sauce”.
We are looking for advanced technology businesses with a sustainable competitive advantage, which have the potential to become scalable, global businesses. Unlike other incubators, we generally look for businesses that are post accelerator stage with some evidence of market validation and product market fit.
In order to maximise the value of our services startups need to be willing to relocate to Sydney and base themselves within Cicada Innovations. In return for our services and long-term support, companies assign us a small portion of equity, aligning your long-term success with ours.
We accept applications all year round. Applicants will be shortlisted for monthly screening sessions at Cicada Innovations. The process is highly competitive and we generally only accept 6 companies per year.
Our team would like to know a little about your technology business as the first stage of incubator selection.
Please answer all the questions below (200 words each) before submitting your application.
