What The Bridge can do for you
Access to the Bridge will allow these ventures to sustain themselves for one or two years while they complete the steps necessary to "de-risk" their technology. They will receive access to mentorship, expert advice and engineering as well as technical support so they can transform into a venture ready to work with incubators and accelerators in the larger startup ecosystem. Bridge companies are able to access work spaces, infrastructure, and expertise needed to develop and build products to get in the hands of their customers faster than ever before.
