For our Build program we look for early-stage startups, that is, based on idea or prototype with concept validation activities, technological base, global potential, of any industry and country with less than one year of development. Join us for a unique learning experience in entrepreneurship for four months.

Each generation will have from 50 to 60 startups, and women will lead at least 50% of them.

10% shareholding

The Team Leader must have at least a 10% share in the company and a managerial position (it must be someone with decision-making capacity).
