Product FAQs

Does Xelera work on all the devices?

The platform is currently available on all desktop and tablet devices. Due to the nature of the work required, we believe the most effective and comfortable way to develop your entrepreneurial project is with a larger display.

What happens once I finish the journey?

Upon completion of the journey, you would have already built your idea into a working business and/or ready for fundraising. Should you require investment to further build or scale your business, you will be able to download a summarized PDF version of all the work done on the platform in the form of an investment deck and use it to contact investors. You also might be eligible to participate in our next demo day, where you can pitch your idea to Xelera’s network of investors.

Can my team work on the platform at the same time?

Yes, we allow multiple simultaneous sessions for you and your team, so there is no need to buy multiple subscription for your idea. Please make sure that you and your team members aren’t working on the same task, as it might over-write each other’s work.

Does Xelera require my full commitment?

Xelera is designed to both fit full time entrepreneurs and part time entrepreneurs. Many entrepreneurs would like to start working on their startup idea while keeping their day-job. This, of course increases the length of time required to complete the development process but makes it easier to bootstrap.

How long does it take to complete it?

Xelera was designed to be accessible and inclusive to everyone, and to allow the maximum flexibility to fit each founder’s time limitations. Hence you can build your business at your own pace. There are no minimum and maximum time limits whatsoever and progress depends on your level of engagement. If at least 2 founders are engaged full-time, we reckon it should take approximately 3-4 months on average to finish the 8 modules.

Can I work on more than one startup at a time?

We hold a one project per account approach as we believe each project should be given at most attention and resources. For now, starting another project requires setting up a second Xelera account.

Do I need a business background to use Xelera?

On the contrary – The whole idea of Xelera is to even the playing field and make entrepreneurship accessible for everyone regardless of bussiness experience. Everyone is welcome.

Does Xelera have a selection or filtration process?

Xelera aims to remove all barriers of entry for aspiring founders around the world. Our core aim is to build an accessible, affordable and inclusive platform for anyone who wishes to work on building the next unicorn. Just subscribe to the platform and start working immediately.
