Entrepreneur in Residence

Innovate, connect, and disrupt

At Kstart we believe in helping amazing founders with disruptive ideas build successful next gen companies. As part of our commitment to the entrepreneurial ecosystem, we are launching our ‘Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) program, a 3 month program that provides access, connect, and workspace to promising high potential founders. This is our way of recognizing and investing time and resources to help entrepreneurs who are in early stages of working on a new idea.

We strongly believe that the working environment plays a key role in fostering creativity and innovation. With this in mind, we have created Respace, a dynamic, participatory and a fully equipped space, that has the power to both inspire and energize. The EIR program participants will have full access to work out of Respace and will also be included in invite only roundtables and events on some of the latest topics of interest to startups.

We are selective and have limited space in the EIR program. If you are a dynamic entrepreneur working on early stages of an idea please apply for the Kstart EIR program below and we will get back in touch with you regarding next steps.
