Turbostart first launched in October 2019, with three stages of screening before the final selection of the top 25 startups. The programme is scheduled to happen bi-yearly, with the next cohort starting in April 2020. Our Management Team, Advisory Board and Investment Committee play an important role in the selection process. The teams work together to hand pick a combined number of 50 startups every year.
