What is the Furnace journey?
Jump into your six months of incubation anytime! When you base your business here (for free), we'll pack your time in the Furnace with useful support and experiences - bringing the right people to you; from legal experts, experienced founders, investors and more, with access to our innovation spaces and tech support when you need them!
What happens after the 6 months?
We're here to help you! Your six months will see you base your business at the DMC for free during your six months. After the dedicated time in the incubator comes to an end, we'll still be there with aftercare and support to help your growth continue. Hopefully, you'll be able to help guide the next group of entrepreneurs to succeed too.
