Among the top 10 reasons why most startups fail are: products not meeting any real market need,

startups running out of cash, and not having the right team.

FUNIC DEEP is a program specially designed to reduce the rate of startup and SME failures by equipping them

with the right tools necessary to identify real needs in the market, constitute

a strong management team, and build internal processes which will make them investor-ready. This 12-month long online program is specifically designed for startup founders who do not yet have a management team. It gives startup founders the opportunity of constituting a team of talented young people straight from school and transform them into a high level management team.

FUNIC DEEP is a 4-step program:

  1. A startup founder recruits 4 young undergrad degree holders who are passionate about acquiring a startup experience.
  2. Together, the team goes through a 12-month intensive MBA program with their startup as case study.
  3. With the coaching of experienced faculty from around the world, the startup team is accompanied through the process of identifying real market needs, developing a working business model, positioning their startup, and building a cohesive team.
  4. Startup becomes investor-ready.
