The main purpose of the Bootcamp is to observe teams and learn more about their work habits and how they work together. It is determinant for Flat6Labs to understand these things before making decisions about which teams to include in the upcoming cycle.
By the end of the 4-day Bootcamp, teams present in front of the selection committee who then select the final teams to be accepted into the cycle. The selection committee is a diverse group of partners, industry experts, entrepreneurs, mentors, and investors all from our close network who come out with the final “go/no go” decision on each team.
This is where the cycle begins and each team works restlessly over the next 4 months developing their core business model, building a prototype, and acquiring customers.

Flat6Labs’ entrepreneurs go through a number of milestones during the training program including the Program Opening, Product Day, the Market day, and the Demo Day, events through which entrepreneurs are able to present their product to a select crowd, receive feedback, network & pitch to potential investors.
After Demo Day, only the best companies move on to receive follow-on funding. Flat6Labs helps teams secure funding by providing them with further assistance with their financials and linking them to more investors. Although teams can no longer work from our office after Demo Day, every startup remains part of the Flat6Labs network with continuous access to our mentor network, support, perks, workshops, and more.
