Academia and industry leaders come together to build the next game changer together with you.  (NO Equity, NO business obligations, see THE ENGINE)


The program will take place in Tel Aviv, from October-January. 

  1. If you want to apply, please submit your application via the F6S form by 23:00 on September 27. Applying early will give us time to evaluate your submission thoroughly and reach out to you in advance if we have any questions. 

  2. On September 27, we will invite the teams that we believe are the best match for the program to meet us for a personal interview. 

  3. Vertical Engine provides office space for your team right next to Tel Aviv University. We do not force teams to work from our space but highly encourage it as it will provide you with real value & business opportunities. 

  4. During the course of the 3 month cycle we will hold MasterClasses and personal Office Hours with a variety of experts who would offer you advice and help you grow your company.  These include seasoned founders, investors, TAU faculty, corporate executives & more.  

  5. Every second week we will go out for drinks with our founders joined by a special guest of our choice. 

  6. During and after the cycle we will introduce you individually to people who could help you grow and develop your company.

  7. After the 3 months cycle is over we will send relevant teams on a fully funded Roadshow to China.

  8. Throughout the program, our corporate partners, Bezeq & Hisense will identify and explore opportunities for collaboration with participating companies, with the potential to be acquired or integrated into their services as a synergistic action. There's no obligation to do business with anyone if you don't want to. 

  9. Our support doesn’t really end after 3 months; only the curriculum does. We will continue to support and help you create meaningful connections as long as you need it.
