The application process

Our process is set up to give you the opportunity to show and tell us the impacts you want to make. After an initial application round, those chosen to proceed will complete a brief case study to demonstrate how you’d approach building a business. The last phase will be interviews with the studio team during which you’ll be asked to pitch a hypothetical business idea. We don’t expect you to know what you want to build at this phase, but rather use this as a means of evaluating your ability to present and evaluate an idea.
