FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Got a question about the Incubator? See below our Frequently Asked Questions for the answer!
How long is the program?
Cohort I starts June 30th and ends August 25th, 2019. Our program lasts for 8 weeks. Apply for Cohort I here.
Is the Twenty-Four Hour Woman Incubator for women only?
We are on a mission to increase the number of women-led companies however, our incubator is not for women only, so long as the idea/business is at least 51% woman owned and/or least ONE woman is a co-founder and in a decision making position.
What is the fee for participating in the incubator?
We charge a small flat fee of $750 per founder (less than $100 a week). The Twenty-Four Hour Woman Incubator does not take equity in your business. We are an application and fee-based program.
There are many Incubators and Accelerators, why yours?
Incubators and Accelerators on the market charge upwards of $2,000 to participate and/or take equity in your business. Because we understand that access to finances is one of the barriers to entrepreneurship, our pricing is less than half of that cost for you to participate in our Incubator. Most women who graduate from our program make more than double the cost of the program upon graduation.
In addition, the Twenty-Four Hour Woman Incubator was built specifically for women who want to start an online business in the age of social media. We focus on helping these women hone in to their natural talents (passion/expertise) and monetize it. All our mentors are seasoned entrepreneurs who also turned their passion and expertise into businesses and are dedicated to helping you in specific areas of your business, such as business development or digital marketing.
There are many free resources online on how to start a business. Why should I pay you?
Robert Heinlein once said “nothing of value is free.” Free resources online are not as exhaustive as what you will receive from the program. Free resources also take longer, are prone to costly mistakes and do not provide accountability. With the Twenty-Four Hour Woman Incubator, not only are you given the blueprint to do it right the first time around, you also get access to mentors and a community of like-minded women who will keep you accountable and provide additional support as you embark on this journey.

You should apply for the program if you fall under the following:
Woman or Woman-Identifying
