To apply, you will need to answer the following questions:
- What problem are you solving and why is it worth solving?
- Can you share a time in your career (either as a freelancer or an employee) where you experienced this (or a similar) problem and how you fixed this problem?
- Why do you think now is the time to test this idea? Do you have a unique insight into the market?
A problem can be a time-consuming task, a breakdown in process or an expensive way of doing something simple. If you’ve ever thought “there has to be a simpler or better way” you’ve identified a problem.
