Companies accepted into our program receive funding and a world-class 12-week program which includes education, mentoring, networking and culminates in a Pitch Day. The first 12 weeks are just the beginning though, because once you’re in Tech Wildcatters you’re part of the family. We select companies we want to work with longterm, so our network and resources become yours.
The summer of 2010 was the first step in realizing our vision. Over 120 companies made inquiries into the program and only five were selected for the inaugural Tech Wildcatters class.
The class of 2014 was the largest and most diverse class in Tech Wildcatters history with an acceptance rate of 4%, these thirteen companies hail from more than six countries.
