* Both Hardware and Software, along with any business model;
* Single founders are also welcome;
* Application Deadline 2021-08-19
APPLY HERE: https://www.f6s.com/the-forge-fall-21
The programme is for more mature companies with around 10 people and a growing customer base. As companies are approaching 10 people or more, there is a significant change in the work that the founders should be performing.
The Mill takes place twice a year.
This is a stand-alone programme, to allow founders a moment to reflect and get ready for the coming changes.
* Founders scaling for the first time, (i.e. team is at 6-10 people)
