The R. Franco Group has recently launched Wanajump, a startup incubator and accelerator designed and created to support video gaming, betting and gaming-related projects.
Wanajump offers two programmes: Wanajump Incube, which focuses on startups with an idea and a multi-disciplinary team amd Wanajump Accelerate is a 4-month programme addressed at startups which already have a service or product in the market.
Wanajump will have three annual calls to support up to 30 startups a year: 12 for the Incube programme and 18 for the Accelerate programme. The company will put at their disposal some 1,000m2 of working space that they will share with R. Franco Group’s digital area, thereby providing for harnessing potential synergies. Each programme will conclude with a DemoDay where startups will be able to present their projects to potential national and international investors.
One of the greatest benefits for the startups which take part in Wanajump’s programmes is that they will be able to have first hand access to the knowledge, expertise and resources provided by the R. Franco Group and its brand
Wanajump’s main strengths include the specialization of the training programme and the mentor team.
Wanajump Accelerate is a programme to accelerate startups comprising a multi-disciplinary team which also have a service, product or prototype in the market.
The training will include the following areas: metrics, KPIs and analytics, game design, visual design, videogames monetisation, growth hacking, SEO, ASO, finances, seeking funding, storytelling and many others.
In addition, each startup will be awarded with 20 hours of individual mentoring to be used as they wish and according to their needs.
Wanajump Incube is intended to provide embryonic startups with the opportunity to receive training for 6 weeks in order to develop a first prototype or product of its idea. They should have a multi-disciplinary team, comprising at least one developer and a business or marketing expert.
During the incubation period, startups receive training on different areas: creativeness, game design, visual, presentations, etc. In addition, they have 10 hours of individual and tailor-made monitoring with the mentors of their choosing and whenever they need.
As with the Accelerate programme, Incube startups will have the opportunity to take part in the DemoDay, where all startups from both programmes shall coincide on the same date and at the same time.
