About the program
DigiTown - literally a digital town, aims to become a unifying international tech hub in the heart of Armenia. DigiTown will work with local and international organizations to develop and stimulate the growth of IT companies in Armenia with one big goal: provide resources for Armenian talent to implement ideas, boost tech entrepreneurship and empower the Armenian economy.
M1TQ (1st incubator of DigiTown) is a 12-week entrepreneurial program with intensive practical coaching, goal-setting and growing. The program consists of weekly sessions: from buyer persona development and prototype testing, to cash flow forecasting and investment pitching. It is designed for early stage startups with a competitive and marketable idea. 8 teams will be selected to participate in the program with 15+ coaches involved. The program ends with a Demo Day, where startups pitch their idea in front of angel investors, venture capitalists and community leaders with various fundraising opportunities.
