Our deferred payment model takes away the immediate requirement for you to pay for product development costs, enabling you to jumpstart your idea and take it to MVP stage so that you can test your hypotheses, evaluate results and showcase them to potential partners, employees and investors. We have given a flavor of the deferred payment terms in Program section but we will work with you to figure out the best suited payment option as per your and your startup's context; you will reach the point of compensating us only when you raise your first round of external investment. In case after repeated genuine attempts you are not able to raise external financing, and therefore decide to not further pursue your startup, we understand, and there will be no (personal or otherwise) liability on you to pay us.
Additionally, Abhishek and Vaibhav, both Harvard Business School alumni with relevant but complimentary professional backgrounds, will work with you to provide you with all possible kinds of help and advisory to help you kick-start your startup. And yes, you can trust us! We have no incentive to steal your idea.
