Do you have what it takes?
We’re looking for ambitious, driven entrepreneurs looking to build the next generation of globally successful software companies.
We’re looking for business-oriented applicants who are interested in learning how to start a software company. While it’s not a requirement to have previous coding experience, a strong interest in learning about technology is a must. We’ve designed the MEST programme to give you the business and technical skills you’ll need to start a successful company.
Successful applications have the following:
A deep passion for starting a software company
Entrepreneurial or corporate work experience
A degree from a top University or Technical College (or equivalent experience)
MEST Training program at a glance
The year-long training programme provides Entrepreneurs-in-Training (EITs) with MBA-level entrepreneurship training in business, software development and communications.
While diving deep into fundamental business and technology concepts, EITs complete 3 Capstones per year – they form teams, come up with an idea, build and validate a product, attain customers and pitch the idea in front of our board.
The year culminates in a final exam in the form of an investor pitch, after which some companies will receive seed funding and enter the MEST Incubator.
