Jones Day Team
Advisors & Influencers
Do we have to give up any equity in our fintech company in order to participate? Is there any charge for applying or participating in the program?
NO, you don’t give up any equity, and there are no charges. You are, however, responsible for your own travel, expenses, and visas (if applicable). Food is provided during the program sessions.
Is the program open to companies outside of the United States?
YES. You must, however, obtain your own applicable visa and be legally eligible to participate in the program in the United States. We do not sponsor visas.
What are the program terms with respect to confidential information, privacy, and conflicts?
Does our fintech have to be at any particular stage of development or have raised a certain amount of funds in order to be eligible?
NO, we consider applicants at all stages. We are seeking innovation and quality regardless of stage or funding.
Our fintech has team members who work for one of the participating organizations or with an advisor/influencer of the program. Are we still eligible?
Please disclose your affiliation in your application.
How much time do we have to commit to be part of the program in the Bay Area?
You will need to have representatives of your company present for the three key days of the program and must present your company in a very short and punchy presentation on the final demo day.
Do you have a preference for companies that have a legal focus?
NO. We are seeking quality fintech companies, and we do not have any sector preference or limitation around that.
