From the staff side, I’ve seen much happening first hand in the whole growth process and I can tell you this:
It is surprising how difficult it is to put concepts into reality. You can read the books, you can understand the concept, but there’s something inherently difficult in putting those ideas in your baby. And here’s when an external set of eyes, an external view point comes in very handy. When it comes to your little baby, your company, your idea, it’s difficult to take a step back and put those concepts into place. You need other experienced people to give you perspective.

The Incubator Program has been designed to focus on helping new ideas launch. Incubating an idea requires focus as well as vision. During the Program we help you by bootstrapping your idea to the point of commercialisation. In some cases this would be in the form of a functioning prototype (or Minimal Viable Product) and finding your first revenue generating customers.
