Your application will be judged based on the quality and detail of your answers and your 10 slide pitch deck. Note: the pitch deck will be the main thing evaluated as part of your application. 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 it ready before you start this form. Please apply by May 14, 2018 to be considered.
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. For example, listing the name, title and target companies allows us to quickly determine if we have the connection or someone similar in our network that can help.
