Yes, you need to relocate to our office for the 20 weeks. We don’t do this to bother you, but because we want to work with you as close as possible during the program.
We focus on seed and early-stage startups. That said, we usually look for teams that didn’t receive a major funding yet.
No, not at all! If your company isn’t incorporated yet, we’ll help you figuring out how to do it.
Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis. That means early applications might have an advantage. We focus on product, market and most importantly, the team. After a first check, we’ll reach out to all promising teams for personal interviews. They play a crucial role in the application process. After the interviews, you’ll hear back from us soon.
PEAKZONE is a privately held company, founded by Lorenz Hartung and Alexander Karl.
Definitely! We are very keen on accepting founders from all over the world. We do however require the team to be physically present at PEAKZONE during the 20 weeks of the program.
In the past, the PEAKZONE management team has worked with highly successful startups like Proglove, Konux and Inveox. Overall, they have supported more than 100 startups with their financing and growth.
We receive hundreds of applications for each batch and we review each one individually. We respond to everyone, but getting a response might take up to a few weeks.
Yes, definitely! There is no downside to applying more than once.
