The fellowship requires your time, effort & energy to make you a hardcore entrepreneur. Top 25% of fellows spend 20 hrs in live learning and 40 hours in building and growing. Majority on weekends.

If you just want to talk about startups

We prefer doers over talkers. You have to get your hands dirty and build something people start using in these 8-weeks.

If you’re looking to chill :p

This fellowship is about learning the tried and tested startup building
frameworks through Harvard like case study discussions and automating your workflow, not about just boring lectures :p

Frequently asked questions

Who should apply?
To be a good fit for No Code Fellowship by Xartup, you are probably:

1. Looking to launch an MVP, a no-code business or a side project, or interested in automating business workflows.

2. Familiar with no-code tools.

3. At least a little bit entrepreneurial and action-biased, with an independent spirit.

4. Eager to be an active participant in a growing community, as much of the value of Xartup comes from the network and peer-to-peer connections.

5. You do not need to have an existing project to apply to the Fellowship. Xartup will help you decide what to launch as part of your capstone project.
What does it cost?
Early Bird pricing for those who complete the application by August 15th is INR 8,000. Regular pricing for those who complete the application after August 15th is INR 10,000. Tuition can be paid in a lump sum or 4 equal installments, starting when you accept your offer.

We have limited scholarships available for each cohort thanks to our Access Fund. Information about scholarship applications will be provided to accepted Fellows closer to the kickoff date.
What is the time commitment?
Xartup is a choose-your-own-adventure buffet. You get out what you put in: often, the biggest contributors are also the biggest beneficiaries.

Depending on your schedule and interests, you could choose to:

1.  Attend everything and “gorge” yourself on knowledge until you explode
2.  Tune in at your leisure to attend sessions that interest you
3.  Or just connect with interesting people one-on-one
Is this a fully remote program?
Yes: Xartup will be run entirely remotely. This enables participation from all corners of the world. We’ve spent the past few cohorts mastering the playbook for building remote communities and relationship building online, and will apply the same approach here.

Post-COVID, we’ll return to organizing offline programming like dinners, small gatherings, and retreats, but the core Fellowship will remain a remote-first experience.
How long will I have access to the community?
After the fellowship, you’ll retain access to your cohort and be able to subscribe to Membership for continued access to the On Deck ecosystem.
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.
