FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Find the answers to our most common questions.

How can I join the program?

Begin by applying here. We’ll review your application and go from there.

What types of companies are ideal for this program?

We work with companies that fit the following profile: tech B2B, complete team, large target market, and relentlessly resourceful founders.

Do I need to relocate my business to participate?

Nope. We do ask teams to come to San Antonio for Launch Week at the very beginning of the program, but work can be done remotely during the 15 months.

When does the program start and end?

Companies join the program when they’re ready. We have a rolling application process instead of a fixed start or end date, and the program duration is 15 months.

What is the cadence of the program?

The program is based on the idea of building real businesses. We provide our network, brainpower, and resources to make your company more successful than if you’re going it alone. Along the way, you’ll have regular meetings with the RealCo team, meet with mentors and investors, and engage in specialized educational programming as needed.

Is there a Demo Day?

No. RealCo works to help companies raise their funds from investors when needed rather than throw a one-size-fits-all Demo Day event.

How often will I meet with the RealCo team?

There are weekly meetings with the RealCo team, monthly meetings with your mentors, and impromptu chats whenever needed. We usually talk with our founders daily if not more often.

What occurs if the company raises a series A before the 15-month mark?

15 months is not a hard timeline; some companies may only be in the program for 6 months, others may utilize the full 15-month program.

Can I raise money during the program?

Of course! We want you to do what’s best for the company and the founders. Most companies raise money during the program, and we help with that process.

Can I be a RealCo mentor?

Let’s talk! Send us an email or stop by the RealCo space if you’d like to discuss this opportunity.
