Only one application should be submitted per team with a cap of two team members participating in the program.
  • What happens after the program?

    Some teams choose to extend their stay in Silicon Valley after the 3 week program ends. PITME can help coordinate follow-on meetings or co-working space with our partner organizations. Other teams are eager to return home to execute on the ideas and strategies they have developed in PITME Labs. All PITME Labs alumni become part of the global network that we are developing and expanding and will be eligible for further opportunities within our collaborative community.
