– Pre-seed or seed stage companies, ideally post-revenue with 6 months of customer data
– At least one member of the founding team must be a CBS alum
– The founding team must all be working full-time on their venture
– The venture must be raising, or looking to raise a round within the next 12 months
– The Lang Fund is geographically and sector agnostic

The deadline to apply is Feb 2.
