TechnoArt@Selina: Global Innovation Program
Selina has over 100 locations around the world where often, location-independent professionals visit and network. Likewise, TechnArt focuses on creating innovation funds for companies that want to grow their businesses.
Their partnership includes two main programs: Born and Grow.
Born is a 12-week innovation program that aims to help early-stage startups to take their idea and vision to a business plan for long-term growth.
Grown is a digital platform focused in meeting the needs of a digital nomad community. It provides access to a curated curriculum and a marketplace of premium services, benefits, and products to advance remote workers’ professional development.
TechnoArt@Selina members can apply for funding via the partnership’s dedicated website www.techno.art.selina.com. These applications will be vetted by the committee and presented by TechnoArt to its strategic investment partners. They expect to allocate between $1 million and $5 million per investment.
