The longer version

The Old Fashioned way - Apply

Complete the BRIIA GPS questionnaire.

Be sure to save your results and indicate that you are applying for an advanced program.

A BRIIA Team member will reach out to you to set a time to review your BRIIA GPS results. In that conversation, we'll determine your readiness for the Advanced Program.

If you don't have all of the pre-requisites for the Advanced Program, we will build a Custom Plan for you that needs to be completed prior to one week after the application deadline.

If you get the green light to apply for the program, the next step is to reserve your spot by paying the registration fee. Use the link under Advanced Programs when you are logged into The Intelligent Accelerator.

This is fully refundable if you are not ultimately admitted to the Program. If you do not pay the registration fee, we will assume you do not want to be considered for the Program.

If you are fully ready for the Program (as discussed in Step 2), then the next thing you will hear is whether or not you are invited to participate in the Program.

If it is determined that there are pre-requisites that you need to complete before being evaluated for the Advanced Program, then your next step is to complete all of the pre-requisites. If the pre-requisites are not completed by one week after the application deadline, then you will not be invited to participate in the Program.

We will let you know if we can accommodate you in the Advanced Program. Ideally, we will let you know about 2 weeks before the program start so that you can make the necessary travel arrangements to be at the Kickoff.

The Intelligent Accelerator way

Complete the BRIIA GPS questionnaire.

Be sure to save your results and indicate that you are applying for an advanced program.

Immediately start your journey on The Intelligent Accelerator. Go to tia.briia.io/login and login with the user name and password you used to save your BRIIA GPS.

Follow the step-by-step plan we've created for you to get you to Milestone 2.

When you have gotten to Milestone 2 and completed the Readiness Review step, you'll be immediately eligible for the Advanced Program.

As you get close to achieving Milestone 2, you'll want to reserve your spot by paying the registration fee. This is fully refundable if you are not ultimately admitted to the Program. If you do not pay the registration fee, we will assume you do not want to be considered for the Program.

We will let you know if we can accommodate you in the Advanced Program. Ideally, we will let you know about 2 weeks before the program start so that you can make the necessary travel arrangements to be at the Kickoff.

NOTE: To be an "Advanced" company, you will need to have a strong understanding of all the topics we cover in our Foundation programs and have completed the prerequisites for the Advanced program. Our approach to developing companies — based on years of experience and feedback from founders — is effective and unique. We will mutually determine whether or not this program is right for you. After review, we may require some pre-work in order to be accepted.
