AE Ventures: Application For Investment
We review applications every day in the order they are received. Since we receive a lot of applications and in the same time we do our ongoing projects it may take several days before we reply to you.

This is the application for investments.
Also we run an acceleration program, called Starfleet, that happens several times a year in different countries around the world. If you want to apply for the accelerator Starfleet, please go to its website: http://aeternitystarfleet.com.

For well-thought projects filling the application for investment will take around 15-20 min - just mark Yes/No and fill the fields with what you already know and thought of.

If it takes you more than 30 min, probably the project is missing something important. If answering a question takes you more then 1 min to think, then you need to work on this question more and when you are ready, come back here.

We ask these questions every startup from the very beginning so you need to have the answers anyway.

If you have any questions, please contact us at investments@aeventures.io.
