Not quite ready to join Sting yet? Sting Test Drives and open coaching are for early-stage startups who are ready to begin turning their idea into reality.

The next Test Drive will be held in the Spring of 2023. Sign up to our newsletter to get notified when the application opens.

Who can apply?

This program is for scalable, early-stage startups with the potential for large international growth. We like to see teams with two to three people and a mix of gender.

What stage should our startup be in?

Sting Test Drive is a hands-on training program for teams with early-stage startups that want to get support to sharpen their business models and start scaling their businesses. The program is a chance to validate your business idea and take it to the next level of scaling. As the workshops run in the evenings, it allows you to work on your business while pursuing your day job. Test Drive is a great way to get to know how we work and explore future opportunities with Sting. 

How does the selection process work?

We will review your application after the application deadline has passed and get back to you within two weeks. Between 10 to 12 projects are accepted to each round.

Will our IP be protected?

At the first workshop, all participants and organizers sign a confidentiality agreement. No information on the business concepts, technologies or names of participants may be spread outside the program without the consent of the participant in question.
