Frequently Asked Questions

What are the costs involved?

Costs: 500EUR (commitment fee) + 2% success fee after you received investments

I am a single founder, can I join the program?

No. Within YES!Delft we are strict on having companies with at least two co-founders. An ambitious team is one of the main criteria for the IRP, and we believe setting up and running a company needs an incredible set of complementary skills ideally found in at least two founders.
Warning! Not everyone is accepted into our Startup plan.

Does YES!Funded invest any startup at the end of the program?

No, YES!Funded itself does not invest in startups and, similarly to YES!Delft, we don’t take equity. We have a large network of investors to whom we will introduce you in a customized way during The Investor Day on the last day of the program, and also anytime you need for two years after completing the program.
