Entrepreneurs in Residence
When you complete the SUND Hub Incubator program, you can apply to become an entrepreneur in residence.
As an entrepreneur in residence, you can continue the use of SUND Hub's facilities and access to experts in order to continue the development and scaling of your startup.
You participate in creating an environment where new teams can meet more experienced entrepreneurs. You must be willing to share your experience and knowledge to inspire new teams.
