Frequently asked

We are looking for Full-Time Founders who are driven, coachable and committed to growing. The ideal company is either at an early go-to-market stage or has launched with established traction, and now ready to focus on unlocking their roadmap to scale.

The program is sector and business model agnostic, as long as there is an innovative technology product being offered.

We do not take any equity in the company. There is a monthly fee beyond the first two months which helps us support the entrepreneurs.

The membership renewal is $200/month for virtual and $350/month for dedicated desk allocations at the YSpace Hubs.  

The program is open to everyone in the community, as long as they are dedicated founders who are willing to put in the committed time to grow the venture.

The Tech Incubator is a bespoke, flexible program designed for businesses who need support to tackle specific issues. Typically, the company maybe slightly too early for the Tech Accelerator or at a later stage in their company life cycle beyond the Tech Accelerator’s scope.

There are three (3) key components within the program:

  • Bi-weekly YSpace Advisor check-ins
  • Office hours with a private network of investors, industry experts, and growth consultants
  • Peer-to-Peer development networks
