The Interview

If you pass Stage One, we’ll invite you to an IRL interview with us or via Skype.

You’ll have two 30 minute interviews

Founder & Edge


In the Founder Interview, we'll be checking to see if you have the individual characteristics that we've seen be most successful on the programme.
After having worked with more than 300 founders, we have a unique perspective on these traits and how they present themselves.


During your Edge Interview we'll ask you to demo a previous project, as well as discussing your areas of technical, product or domain expertise.

The Offer

If successful at interview and are offered a place on the cohort you’ll be invited to events with us and other cohort members at EF HQ (in Singapore or London respectively).

This is your chance to get to know a bit more about your future cohort, EF and how the programme is run.
