The Junction Message Board › The Junction's Wave 7 - Call for applications
Tel Aviv-Yafo, IL
This is a call for applications for The Junction's wave 7, starting November 2012.
Don't miss out on a great and unique opportunity to enjoy the full benefits of an accelerator without needing to give up on any equity. You can now accelerate your startup, work out of an extremely supportive and productive environment, and become a part of the exclusive Junction Alumni Network entrepreneur community. This wave we are announcing unique collaboration with Mastercard & General Motors to provide funding opportunities and hands-on assistance to your startup.
What is The Junction?
The Junction is an open house for entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs at the junction enjoy a place to work out of and great people to work with. We also give back to the community by having open talks every Thursday – if you haven't been there already, come right in through the meetup group. Here is a link to a movie we made of The Junction‘s first year of operation.
What more can I get from The Junction?
In addition to Thursdays'' open talks, teams (and Alumni) at The Junction enjoy "twitter-free founder lunches" with industry luminaries like David Lawee (head of M&A for Google), Jeff Kowalski (CTO, Autodesk) and "office hours" with industry experts in fields such as UI/UX, marketing, product, finance, presentation skills and more.
Anything else I can expect from The Junction?
Sure! At the end of every wave The Junction holds a demo day showcasing demos by the members and alumni to the industry's most prominent angel investors. Some of the funded Junction teams include EatWith, Simplee, ClarityRay, Vidit, Moment.me, and more.
But wait, that's not all. We are happy to announce that starting from wave 7, The Junction will be collaborating with General Motors & MasterCard to provide members with strategic knowledge and advice, access to programs, industry experts, corporate resources and more. MasterCard will be a real asset for any payment related startup, and GM can be a huge help for Smart Sensing and Computer Vision Systems, Human Machine Interface and Wireless Enablers.
Sounds great. What's the catch?
No catch! This is a pure for-the-community, "pay-it-forward" activity. No equity, no finders' fee, no right of first refusal. All we ask is that you commit to support and help your fellow entrepreneurs with your knowledge and experience and thereby help The Junction's community as it in return helps you.
Who should join The Junction?
Active entrepreneurs that are committed to their idea and are willing to give and receive to the community. Start-ups for which these three months can help catapult you forward. Any active team of entrepreneurs (1-3 team members, regardless of their idea) is welcome to join, be a part of, and work at The Junction.
Call ends Nov 4th. The easiest way to submit an application is at this link. If you aren't starting something right now, send it to your friends. They will thank you.
