I need help with all of these Pioneer terms. Anyone else?

Just signed up last night and would love to crowdsource a list of Pioneer-specific terms. (Updated 2/17/21 to include AndyDent-Touchgram's comment. Thanks Andy!)

Pioneer - A start-up that has risen high enough on the Leaderboard that the Pioneer organisation has reviewed it and extended an offer of some kind to back the startup, provide mentoring & move them into a community of Pioneers

Frontier - A forum within the Pioneer.app website with a mix of overall browsable pages and semi-private ones only accessible via direct link, used to provide feedback on weekly reviews

Tournament - The main point of the Pioneer.app gamified accelerator, functions as an early funnel where the best startups rise to the top

Leaderboard - A scoreboard that ranks the Tournament competitors based on a cumulative score calculated mostly from weekly reviews

Launcher - Structured product for very early startups to build up their idea to launch, providing guidance and encouragement on how to reach out for the right feedback

Anything else?
