Yes! You do not need any prior knowledge, just interest and desire to start a business.

No. You can join the idea of someone else and work together through the weekend. But if you suddenly get an idea, then feel free to share it. Maybe someone else will join your team and develop it further!

It is not allowed to take each other’s ideas, and we clearly state that. The collection must be open and safe. Besides, most ideas need to be further developed before they can become really good.

No, everyone with a multicultural background is welcome. We are concerned with diversity in experience, background, age and beyond.

Bring a laptop and a notebook. Together with your team, you create pitch decks in the Canva program.

We usually send out emails several times before the preschool. Check the spam inbox – they might end up there. If not, let us know at muzammil@startupmigrants.com

Yes, so far all lectures are in English. You are welcome to join, even if you do not speak English fluently.
