The program is concluded in week 10 with two showcases: an internal invite-only presentation to the stakeholders of the program and a public Demo Day.

Students accepted into the program will be allowed to work out of the incubators during the entirety of the 10 weeks and will be given a portfolio of resources to supplement the lectures in an effort to catalyze their ventures.
