Metis startup accepted into Alchemist Accelerator training program
The app the trio developed is called Metis. The purpose of the app is to help students select the best courses and degree based on their interests, appreciations and personalities.
By the time the inventors graduated from CMU-Q, Metis had made it to the alpha launch state. Post-graduation, the innovative app has progressed through Qatar Science and Technology Park and the AlFaisal – Carnegie Mellon Innovation Entrepreneurship Center.
“We are so excited to join this program and be in Silicon Valley: it's the next big step in our pursuit of becoming a real startup,” Bin Wasi said.
The Alchemist Accelerator program is unique in that it only accepts startups whose revenue comes from enterprises, not customers. The accelerator concentrates on growing the startup through a strategic fundraising plan, market validation, sales and enterprise customer development.
