    • Strategy and operations consulting provided by Deloitte
    • Legal and business advice from Arnold and Porter or Bracewell
    • Technical advice and hosting credits from Amazon Web Services
    • One-on-one leadership coaching provided in partnership with The HR Sage
    • Opportunities to present directly to ecosystem stakeholders, press, and potential funders at kickoff and final showcase events
    • Access to a wide range of innovators, influencers, and community figures through conferences and events
    • Five months of free housing in Washington, DC, USA (from 8 September, 2020, to 15 January, 2021)
    • 18 months of free workspace at Halcyon, followed by affordable co-working options at Halcyon Arts Lab
    • Shared meeting spaces including formal board rooms and creative spaces
    • Additional meeting spaces, performance spaces, and free parking at Halcyon Arts Lab
