Participants will be provided with a variety of personal and group opportunities with mentors, entrepreneurs, angel investors, legal experts, venture capitalists, as well as others in a variety of forums. Participants will receive custom assistance, as well as access to workshops on topics such as branding, sales, distribution, funding and financials.

All founders should attend onsite. The average number of onsite team members per company is 3-4.

In addition, Sprint offers an optional $100,000 convertible note to each company. So, when combining the two investments, the total equity provided is in the 7-10% range, typically on the lower end of that range.
