CAN I PARTICIPATE IN A PROGRAM AS A SINGLE FOUNDER?

No, diverse and multi-disciplinary greatly outperform single co-founder teams, globally and our data suggests this as well. If you cannot manage to convince people to join you on your mission and put trust in their capabilities, you cannot build a team and a company. Y-Combinator, techstars and other leading incubators worldwide adopt this “no single co-founders” policy as well. Source 1 , source 2, source 3.
