Eligibility Criteria:
  • Open to companies who have already built and launched their core technology, and be able to demonstrate traction and/or substantial use cases;
  • While organizers encourage companies to approach the program with an open mind and the desire to develop new technologies and services in collaboration with government entities, the program is not open to early-stage startups that are still at the ideation stage.
  • From experience, the program is best suited to technology companies that have raised Seed or Series-A, or employ a number of staff beyond the core founding team. While DFA offers an exciting and unrivaled opportunity, it is important that a company has the resources to commit to the program, without it being a concern for founders or investors. Again, however we do consider companies on a case-by-case basis.
