The Boston-based accelerator will announce the selected startups on 5 April, thereafter, the programme will kick off on 6 May and run until 7 June.
Personalised plans for selected startups

Once the programme commences, participants will meet regularly with their assigned mentors and venture partners to ensure they meet their goals and milestones.
Programme participants will also benefit from intensive company-specific workshops in areas such as business model optimisation, finance and product roadmapping.
In addition, those startups that meet their milestones and goals stand to benefit from investments of up to $120 000.
