Frequently Asked Questions
We are sorry, but most if not all of our FAQs are written in French.
If you understand French, you can switch your program interface language by using the flags in the menu at the top right of the pages.
If not, feel free to ask your question(s) below and we will do our best to answer it (in English) as soon as possible.
You are invited to participate in a Strategy4startup acceleration program? Congratulations! The registration process is quite simple, just follow the instructions below:
To participate in a program, you do need a Google account, since all documents are shared Google documents. For that, you can either choose to use an existing Google account or create a brand new one.
1. The first step is to create this Google account if needed. All program notifications and interactions will be done through the email of this account by default, so I strongly recommend to use a usual email address : follow this link to create a Google account with your usual email address. If you prefer, you could create a new gmail.com personal account here.
2. The second step is to register on Strategy4startup with your Google account. For that go to the Strategy4startup program page. Click on the Google logo in the "My programs" framed box on the left side. Connect to your Google account if necessary. On the first connection, you will be asked to link your Google account with the Strategy4startup application: accept it (you won't have to do that again later).
You will then be registered on Strategy4startup with your Google account. In the "My Programs" framed box, you will probably be told that "You have no program" available. It is normal since your Google account has not yet been associated with the program by the person who invited you to participate.
3. Tell this person that you have registered : send him/her the Google account email you have chosen for him/her to be able to add you to the program with this email address. You will be notified as soon as it has been completed. You will then see the program name appear in the "My Programs" framed box of the Programs page and you will be able to access it.
4. Finally, you could complete your profile on Strategy4startup. At registration, your name, surname and profile photo have been automatically drawn from your Google account. If you do not have a photo in this account, you can add one directly in your Strategy4startup profile, it is far more cool for everybody! For that just go to the "Profile / Photo" option of the pop-up menu over your name in the right top of the page, then follow the instructions. Please note that this photo will only be visible in the Strategy4startup program (not in your Google account). If you feel so, you could also add a mini-bio about yourself and your Skype id, has Skype been chosen as the visioconference system of choice for the program meetings.
