A couple of weeks ago we have opened our call for startups. We are looking for disruptive digital startups to support in their go-to-market strategy, achieve traction and generate initial revenues. If you’d like to apply, here’s 3 essential requirements you must have to increase your chance to get into the next batch of startups!

Complete team

Team is crucial to startup success. A startup applying to the LUISS ENLABS acceleration program must have an almost complete team that can have some weaknesses but cannot have gaps. In the wish team, there must be a back-end developer, a front-end developer and a marketer or a very good full stack developer and a person in charge of the strategy. The quality of the team is the most important factor for your startup. Your teammates will share the good and bad moments and that is why you have to choose the best team possible.

Working prototype

In addition to the team, we consider it crucial having a prototype that works properly. The prototype will show us that you have been working on the project for a long time and that money, effort and time have been spent on it. It also makes us understand that the team is able to do what it wants to do but, and above all, that in a short period of time you will be able to launch a private beta version of the website.

Market analysis

Last but not the least, the market analysis. It’s useful to determinate the characteristics unique to your particular market and to analyze this information, which will help you make decisions for your business. With your market analysis, you will show us that you have a clear idea of the path down which you are headed. These are the minimum requirements, and any further elements could represent a plus to increase your chances to be selected. Are you sure to have all you need to get into our next batch?
