FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long is the program?

The program will take place over six weeks, starting Oct. 20.

Does the program take equity?

The Boost program is designed to be the start of a company-building relationship. To align interests for long-term success, we will discuss equity-based agreements with the selected Boost Cohort in the form of stock options, warrants, or rights to invest in a future financing round, as appropriate based on the stage of each company.

Must the company be incorporated?

The company must be incorporated to receive the participation grant but does not need to be incorporated at the start of the program.

How big must the team be?

The team must have at least two full-time co-founders.

How developed does the product need to be?

We’ll accept products at any level of development. We’re excited about everything from two founders with a deck to a company with a product and early sales.

Any specific areas of focus you are looking to attract?

While we are excited about any and all solutions that bring efficiency to the built environment, we are particularly excited about startups in design, planning, supply chain, fintech, automation, ESG, mass customization, robotics, and smart building space.

 

What are your assessment criteria?

We will use standard venture criteria to assess each company. Further, we will take into account your ability to disrupt and transform the built world and the ability of Suffolk Technologies and our network to add value given the problem you present.
