Start shipping. Keep shipping.

Weekly check-ins with your crew to demo progress and help you stay motivated to keep building. You'll also link up with other builders and have the opportunity to give and receive valuable feedback re: your product.

Join sessions led by epic builders.

Every week you'll join other builders for co-building sessions. We'll also arrange kickoffs and fireside chats with incredible shippers, founders and leaders from various domains: music, art, code, hardware, and more.

Present your project at demo day.

At the end of the 6-weeks, you'll get to show the world what you've been up to. You'll have tons of feedback and ultimately decide whether if you're ready to take the full-time leap of faith.

Come build IRL in San Francisco.

The best builders of the cohort will get a chance to come down to San Francisco and build IRL for a week! Explore what it takes to be a founder. You'll make new frens and understand whether you're ready to go from part-time passion -> full-time builder.
