No applications will be accepted after this date or examined in another format.
Candidates who pass the pre-selection phase will be invited to:
- a meeting with the Up Grade team to examine the start-up’s financial data during weeks 12 to 15,
- pitch their start-up to the selection committee on Tuesday 27 April 2021.
Prior to the pitch, the selection committee will initially assess the online applications.
The selection committee comprises business leaders, financial partners (banks, investors, BpiFrance, Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region), and operational partners (ADI-NA, science parks, business clusters).
The official selection will be announced on Tuesday 4 May 2021, during an evening event.
Submitting an application does not in any way guarantee that the candidate will take part in the programme, which depends solely on the decision made by the selection committee.
