  • Someone looking for an opportunity to test the next-generation 'Elon Musk' ideas before college.

  • Someone who aspires to be a community leader and to solve their community's most significant issues.

  • Students who want to seize the opportunity to test their startup ideas within the global ACF ecosystem.

  • Students who want to participate in coding reviews and receive project reviews from a pitching expert in groups rather than coding alone.
