Please join our upcoming webinars
Can I apply if I have a few years of experience
Sure. However, you may want to explore other options such as KSUM, etc and check if they may suite you better
I don’t know if I am a startup material
You can find out whether you are a startup material only when you try it out. However, the startup is only for people who are immensely motivated to be successful in life
How is this different from KSUM or another incubator
Lycaeum is closely involved with the startup even to the extent of influencing the decisions for the startup. Our philosophy is that many startups fail because of inexperience and we are closely involved. Our partners will work alongside the startup to make them successful and will be making decisions alongside the co-founders
Can I apply as a team
Yes, you can definitely apply as a team. However, the interviews will be done individually and decision will be made whether to admit the whole team or not. If you are applying as an individual you will be paired to work with others
Do I need a startup idea to apply
You don’t necessarily need an idea to apply as many of the ideas might not be fundable. Our idea is that through the initial program you will figure out
an idea and to assess whether the idea has potential. You will work on the idea and we expect you to pivot just as any other startup
How much does this program cost
The program has two options. You can either pay Rs. 3L for 9 months or go through the entire program free of cost with a basic stipend to support
yourself. For the latter option Lycaeum is essentially providing seed funding and hence will have an equity claim in the company
How is your internship different?
Our training is done by industry veterans with decades of experience working in tech. Unlike, other institutes where the faculty is inexperienced, our faculty are practitioners of the trade
I’m a ﬁrst year student or I’m not a computer science student and do not know programming, Can I attend?
Yes. The only requirement is that you have the attitude to want to learn to code which is an essential skill for any discipline and one of the easiest ways to distinguish yourself from other candidates. You can completely beneﬁt from the program
I may not be able to attend full six weeks, is that ok?
The last 2 weeks are interview preparation. You can choose to attend that or can move on to an online training model if you cannot attend in person for the last two weeks
