Eligibility Requirements for the McGill Lean Startup Program 2019

  1. Teams can be formed with individuals from any university or background HOWEVER they MUST have at least 1 McGill affiliation: student, faculty, staff or alumni. If the only affiliation is a McGill alumni, they should have graduated from McGill no more than 5 years ago. Preference will be given to teams formed entirely of individuals from McGill.

  2. Teams must be a minimum of 2 individuals who are founders, with one technical and one non-technical. If, for e.g., your startup project is a food-based startup (and not a tech startup), then one of your founders needs to be a food scientist (or have a similar background/expertise) to be able to create your product.

  3. Teams must show proof of having worked on an idea, concept, or prototype (ideally for 3+ months).

  4. Teams must attend all lectures, missing more than 2 lectures leads to disqualification and $50 reimbursement for the course (per member).

  5. Startups teams are not more than 2 years old.

  6. Startups teams have not raised a significant amount of funding yet (under $100K) in the last 2 years.

  7. This must be the only startup project you and your team are working on.

  8. Teams expressly intend to enter the McGill Dobson Cup 2020 or have done so previously.
