FAQs

As a scientist, you must dedicate as much time as possible during the validation of the market opportunity of the project. If the startup is created, the scientist will be required to work full time to executethe action plan agreed with The Collider’s team.

Your role will be based on maximising your unique knowledge to make technology a marketable product.

If the validation of the business opportunity is positive and your profile is sufficient to carry out the role, you will be nominated as the Co­-Founder.

As one of the selected to take part in The Collider, this does not automatically guarantee that you are going to become the Co­-Founder of a future company.

To finally decide whether to create the startup or not, you must have validated that a business opportunity exists and demonstrate that you have the profile needed to join a team of Co­Founder’s.

Ideas should arise and materialise during the Opportunity Validation of the programme. However, there is no problem if the participant wishes to expose his or her idea during the process.

The seed investment awarded to each startup to develop a minium viable product will be up to 50.000€. Once the program is finalised, mVenturesBcn holds the right, but nor the obligation, to co-invest in the project together with other stakeholders.

The successful and unsuccessful candidates will be announced on the 9th of November via email.

Once the Venture Building phase is finalised, the startups that have succeeded in attracting the market’s interest will be offered an incubation space for three futher months to develop their business and fundraising strategies.
