Changes to the Application Process
Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, all London community gatherings have been suspended indefinitely. If they believe that you could be a good fit for the program, you will be provided the opportunity to get to know their team, and mentors, via a 1:1 virtual call. For most applicants, acceptances will be conveyed during the call itself.
For some applicants, there may be an extended review process. During this process, mentors will be assigned to the applicants directly and will work with the applicants on refining the application. A final decision will be made following the process.
Step One: Submit your application on Gust. Their team reviews applications periodically and you will be notified if you are shortlisted for their applicant mixer within 6 weeks.
Step Two: If shortlisted, you will be required to attend a community gathering in London. Exceptions can be made for founders based outside of the UK. The network of alumni and investors will provide them with relevant feedback following the mixer.
Step Three: If you are successful, you will hear back from our team within 3 working days following the community gathering. All that’s left for you to do is to accept your offer to join the garage!
