What happens during the 3 months?

During the Lift program the candidates have the opportunity to materialize their ideas with a continuous support of our mentors. Our workflow consists of weekly pitches where the lifts present the progress in the research, design and development of their projects. There are several occasions to gain visibility on public events during the semester and the final pitch is on the KiBu Demo Day at the end of the Talent program which is a singular event to showcase the projects in front of a broader audience, press and investors. The goal of the program is to prototype the ideas that either end up in cultural context or in the field of tech innovation.
