In the first month of the 13-week programme, the startup founders will meet with more than 100 mentors (50 of whom are Target team members, including Chairman and CEO Brian Cornell and Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer Minsok Pak), through a Mentor Madness event (pitched as speed-dating style conversations between business leaders and startups).

Month two will focus on how to bring an idea or product to market and meet relevant sales goals. The final month is all about Demo Day prep (the big day is 10th October), when the startups will learn how to pitch their ideas, get fundraising efforts off the ground and start meeting potential investors.
