Do I have to have a startup idea to apply?

No, you do not have to have a startup idea to participate in EU-XCEL, however, many applicants do have startup ideas they are interested in developing as part of the programme and pitch these to other participants as part of the team formation process at their startup scrum.   Importantly, while it is not essential to have a specific startup idea before the scrum, you must be committed to co-founding new international tech startups and have a proven interest in entrepreneurship (see our 2016 selection criteria for who should apply) and all participants are encouraged to research some potential startup ideas before their scrum takes place.
