Who and how can join .Cocoon

Who can apply 

Our program is designed for startup founders who want to scale their business and to grow as humans. Both objectives are important - business development and personal development.


We are looking for growing companies. This is quite an intense program, and hence, your company needs to have enough momentum to bring new challenges to the table for every mentoring session.


After every Mentoring Event we select a limited number of applicants in 3 tiers. The maximum number of Full Program participants is 40 founders in total. The actual division between tiers can vary year by year around the following objectives: 

  • 10 founders from startups with Monthly revenue € 1 000 - 24 999;

  • 20 founders, € 25 000 - 199 999;

  • 10 founders, € 200 000 and more.

How to apply

These are the steps that founders from the first two groups follow.

(If your company's MRR is € 200 000 or more, please, reach out to us directly, see contacts).  


1. Application
Fill in our online application here

2. Mentoring event
If you are selected after the application review, we will invite you to join the nearest Mentoring event.

We give 8-12 new startup founders the possibility to join the next Mentoring Event for a fee of 600€ (+VAT if applicable). If you bring your co-founders, then discounts apply.

The event is part of the full program, and therefore, you will be joining the founders already in the program. The event is double-sided matchmaking that enables us to see if this is a fit for you and for you to see if it resonates with you. 

For those who are also interested in joining the full
1-year program:

3. Interview
We will meet online after the Mentoring event. Only 3-5 startup founders from each batch will get an offer to join the 1-year program. We consider your business potential and also if there is the main mentor match for you.

4. Contract
If both sides are satisfied with the accomplished steps, we will agree upon the terms and sign the year long Mentoring program contract.
