NUMA is excited to introduce the startups joining us for our June 2018 cohort. The startups in our latest season cover six different industries and 4 continents with our founders coming from Israel, India, France and Canada. All are looking to get a piece of the American Dream! They created tech solutions for industries as diverse as event planning, healthcare, industrial, e-commerce, social entrepreneurship and HR. Before being accepted into our program, each company was put through a highly selective process. Of the hundreds of startups that applied, we admitted less than 1%. Over the course of the ten week program, our companies will work to build out their traction in B2B sales, B2C user acquisition or fundraising in the US market. By the end of the program, founders will:

  • Have a repeatable and scalable sales or investment process
  • Have iterated and gained traction in the U.S. market
  • Be ready to hire and scale
  • Understand U.S. fundraising landscape
  • Have a supportive personal network in New York
  • Have a US roadmap for the next 6 months
