Generic advice feels great. But it’s not actionable, nor specific enough.
We’ll stress test your startup like never before.
Weekly sprints on key topics, AMAs, office hours, mentoring and assignments will make your project 10x stronger.
Because of our 100% free program (no fees and no equity), we support every founder in our program.
Taking your company to the next level in a smart way will help you attract top talent and capital.

As healthcare science start-ups stem from a broad spectrum of scientific and technological fields, they are not always easily categorized.
Note that our Lausanne branch is also running a parallel Cleantech programme.
Applications to join the IMAGINE IF! 2022 program are open and candidates should apply online before the 9th Mar 2022.
You will need to select your closest Innovation Forum branch during the online application (i.e. Cambridge, Oxford, London, Manchester, Barcelona, Lausanne, Hong Kong, or our global pool).
The top teams per branch will be selected to participate in a 12-week virtual Core Programme that consists of one-to-one mentorship, expert speakers-led interactive workshops and free professional services. You will be working alongside other elite start-up founder peers around the globe virtually supported by the Innovation Forum teams.
The highly structured programme is designed as a series of weekly sprints, each of them with a different topic or theme to give founders the tools, advice and hands-on experience they need.
Some of the sprints include:
Sprints are also associated with milestones to help founders build a strong proposition to attract potential partners, early employees and investors.
The Core Programme ends with the local finals held in June/July by each individual branch, in which startups will pitch in front of a jury of serial entrepreneurs and investors for a spot in the next phase of the programme.
Winners of the local branches will compete in the second phase of the accelerator programme.
The finalists will have the opportunity to benefit from mentoring & coaching, one-to-one clinics sessions and an executive curriculum through our partnerships with leading academic and industry experts.
The Executive Programme culminates with a Demo Day when the finalists will present their startups and progress in front of a panel of investors and partners within our global network. The winner of the competition will take away a non-dilutive cash prize amongst other benefits.
