What kind of talents is UNLEASH not looking for?

UNLEASH is not an accelerator for existing ideas, but rather a place for new ideas and collaboration. UNLEASH seeks to source early stage ideas and applicants need to be willing to work with others. As such, applicants will not qualify for UNLEASH if they:
Are not willing to work on completely new ideas or challenge their existing idea significantly through collaboration with other participants.
Launched their current idea in an entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial capacity that they are working on full-time, and intend to only use UNLEASH to further this idea.
Have generated revenue (e.g. from customers, users) or raised funding (e.g. from grants, investors) for their current / newest idea, and intend to use UNLEASH to work on this idea.
Have multiple full-time paid employees working on their current / newest idea.

Can teams apply?
No, UNLEASH will only accept application in individual capacity.
