Frequently asked questions

How do I join the fellowship program?
After applying for the fellowship, you’ll be screened through two 10 minute interview rounds - ability round and behavior round. Ability round tests your ability to build (either you’re a good coder) or sell (you’re a good business guy). Behavior round tests your agility and whether you fit into our cohort. Cohort starts from 6th June.
What do you look for in a Xartup fellowship aspirant?
We follow Y Combinator's ethos rigorously and prioritize building & selling. An ideal fellow would be extremely quick in testing their ideas and iterating logically if it fails. We'd choose fellows possessing exceptional logical and analytical thinking to solve a problem.
Why do you charge a fee?
After two rounds of vetting, we charge an acceptance fee of 8K to make sure the fellows we are admitting are serious about building a startup. The ROI depends on your efforts and it can be anywhere between 10x to 1000x. This way we make sure you'll get a cofounder who is actually dedicated about founding a company.
Can we raise investment through Xartup fellowship?
You will get $200,000 worth of credits to build your MVP from scratch. Though no one can promise you on this, if you’re agile enough to get traction and validate your idea, India’s top-notch investors will be looking forward to investing in you during the demo day.
Should I have an existing idea to join the fellowship?
It doesn’t matter at all for your application. Startups are all about team and execution. If you have an idea, that’s good. But, you will have to brainstorm with your cofounders from the upcoming cohort to arrive at a consensus as to which idea to pursue for the next 7 weeks.
What happens once I get selected?
If you seem to be a good fit for our upcoming cohort, you will get $200,000 worth of credits from on various technology products. You have confirmed your position by paying a nominal fee towards all the facilitation during the cohort. We charge a nominal acceptance fee as we seek fellows who are serious and dedicated to their work for the next 8 weeks.
What’s your refund policy?
We have a merit-based selection process which is why we have a strict no refund policy.
Can I reapply if I don’t get selected in this cohort?
We have a low selection rate of 8% due to our small cohort size, but we love the never-give-up attitude of founders and ensure you a wild card entry into our cohort if you consistently apply 5 times, even if you don’t pass the interviews. Agility and consistency are something we trust more than our interviews.

We provide $200,000 technical credits 

What are technical credits?

Selected fellows get $200,000 worth of tools for building your website, app, and marketing your product completely free sponsored by the partners listed below
