Application Instructions

Pitch decks must be non-confidential and should follow Guy Kawasaki's guidelines on both content and order of the slides, found here. Please have your pitch deck & company logo (ideally, that works against a white background) ready before you start your application. 

Please be incredibly specific when answering the questions so we have a better idea of how we can best leverage the Connectors in our Network.
