The participating teams will have the opportunity to interact with other teams from various fields, share their insights, and learn from each other. Furthermore, selected startups will receive tailored mentorship from experienced mentors who have successfully built their products and services on a global scale.

By the end of the program, the top 5 startups, who best showed their business potentials through their initial beta service, will be selected as Devless Heroes.
