Frequently Asked Questions

What are the criteria to apply?

Tech startup founded by Indonesian citizen, with less than $1 million in funding, less than 10 employees or launched after January 2022 (one year old).

I don’t have any ideas for a startup yet. Can I apply?

Yes you can. But it’s best to do a preliminary research regarding a specific target market or specific problem you’re looking closely, so you don’t enter the program empty handed.

Do I have to pay anything to participate in the program?

None whatsoever. This program is free for all participants.

Will I get funded upon program completion?

Top 20 startups will get the chance to pitch in our exclusive Demo Day event in front of our VC, angel investors and ecosystem partners. Top 20 startups will pitch to fundraise max USD 200,000 at USD 1,000,000 pre-money valuation to our VC and angel investors partners. If your startup managed to raise money from our partners, DS/X Ventures has the option to also participate USD 50,000 in investment (can both lead or participate).

I’m a solo founder. Can I apply to the program?

Although most VCs prefer multiple founders in a startup, you can participate in DSLaunchpadX as a solo founder.

Can I participate in the program even if I can’t code/program/build apps?

In order to build a tech solution, your startup will require technological capability. If you cannot do it, we suggest you find a co-founder who can, before applying in the program. Alternatively, there are a TON of no-code startups that can help you build apps quickly without heavy coding.
