A 3-step recruitment process to select the right candidates.
The first step is the online application in which the applicants will answer questions about themselves, their project idea, and their co-founders. The applications are open from September 9th to October 19th.
During this time, the potential candidates are encouraged to learn more about Afkar Incubator’s mission and get a glance at the previous cohort’s projects. Our five info sessions will take place, as follows:
The candidates are also welcome to visit us at the incubator on September 13th, 20th, and 27th in addition to October 4th, 11th, and 18th.
After reviewing the online applications, we will contact the selected applicants for the second step and a one-to-one session will be scheduled within 48 hours after the call. The candidate will meet the team for a short interview at the incubator’s workplace in order to better present his or her project. Selected candidates will be invited to a short pitch on October 23rd or 24th.
The last step is the Bootcamp; it is an unconventional three days assessment that will take place in our incubator’s workplace from November 4th to November 6th. The final selection will happen after the Bootcamp, and the final list will be announced on November 6th. The first cohort graduation and the second cohort launching party will take place on November 7th. The second cohort will officially start on November 11th.
