QØ carefully hand picks a group of talented Founders with great ideas that are passionate and motivated to bring on a new team of Free Agents and grow and learn together over the Incubator. This is real, not some school project where you're the only one that does the work. There are no grades. The marketplace decides your ultimate fate. QØ Fellows go on to grow their ventures, raise millions of dollars, and drop out of college to start businesses*.
(*While they are the minority of participants, they exist and this is real.)
2. Real Resources
It takes resources to build a business. You get a design team who will create a real brand, logo, and design assets to help your company look legit. You get a legal team that can explain to you the in's and out's of startup law and help you incorporate. We introduce you to real venture capitalists that have invested over $1,000,000 in QØ teams. True story.
3. Dedicated, Experienced Guide For Your Journey
Each team is paired with a dedicated Advisor who will meet with your team weekly if not more. They are experienced professionals who know their stuff. They help you with specific skills and knowledge for the challenges and strategy of your team. They also help you, individually, build the soft skills that it takes to be successful.
4. A Tribe For Life
Every year, at the end of this experience, participants look around the group, all on this journey together, and they all say the same thing:
"I thought I was the only person like this, now I know I'm not, I've found my people".*
QØ is a community that starts now, but lasts forever, QØ Fellows continue to have access to 1-on-1 advising and career coaching, exclusive internships, and venture capital funding. Best of all, you are a member of a strong and growing network of Fellows that are friends and allies for life.
5. Take A Chance. What Do You Have To Lose?
The standard path will always be there. This is your chance to do something different. When else will you be able to devote 6-weeks of your summer to learning a ton, and regardless of what happens, be able to look back and say "I'm 100% glad I did that".
For some of you, this will start you on a journey that will literally change your life forever*. Others will have the most memorable experience to date and become a part of a growing network that they can tap into no matter what path they pursue. It's a win-win-win-win (win).
