The selection process takes place over the course of one month. First, a diverse cross-section of gener8tor's team will carefully review your written application. If you are selected for a first round interview, you will be invited to a 20-minute virtual call during which you’ll give gener8tor a high-level overview of your company, answer a few questions and ask a few questions of your own. About ⅓ of those companies will move on to the second round - also a virtual interview, but a bit longer and with more time for discussion. Final round interviews with the top 15-20 companies last for one hour and take place in person. The final round includes either a lunch or dinner opportunity to network with other applicants and the gener8tor team in a more casual setting. A pitch deck is strongly encouraged for the first round, and required for the second and final rounds.

gener8tor's team will make it as easy as possible for you to find affordable, short-term housing!
