Two companies may propose a combined technology solution to be considered for this year's
class subject to the following:
1) The terms of the partnership (financial, technological, etc) need to be worked out
between the two partners in advance of submitting an application.
2) One of the partners should be designated the lead.
3) One of the partners must be headquartered with the majority of its employees in New
York. Senior management of the other partner must commit to spend meaningful time
in NYC during the 4 month program.
4) Each partner can take the $100,000 convertible note at their option. The program will
take common stock warrants (1.5% of fully diluted, subject to reduction if the company
has raised significant amounts of outside capital) in each of the partners.
5) Neither partner can have in excess of $10mm of revenues in 2014.
