Our perspective on all things digital and entrepreneurship
Some startups pivoted completely from their original business idea, based on the results of validation experiments they conducted with their target customers, using frameworks from the program.
Other startups changed their business model entirely after learning how social impact companies from other regions, and around the world, are running financially sustainable businesses that do not compromise their ethics.
Watch some of the highlights from the Q&A session with Neville Crawley, CEO of Kiva, one of Silicon Valley’s most impactful social enterprise startups.
Two startups progressed building their MVPs using the no-code tools they learned during the program, proving that technical ability is no obstacle to building and launching your business.
One startup went from an idea to 80% completion of their MVP during the program, using practical techniques learned during the program to make data-driven decisions and receiving coaching from our team to achieve tangible milestones.
One startup went from ideation stage to launch during the program, after understanding what to focus on and prioritize, to get up and running in the leanest way possible. This included focused financial planning and practical no-code app development insights, supported by regular coaching from industry experts.
100% of Startups stated they had a stronger business coming out of the program!
We have had our heads down all summer turning our proven incubator programs, that have helped entrepreneurs launch and scale since 2013, into the region’s first self-paced, online incubator for all entrepreneurs.
You will learn the building blocks of how to go about launching and scaling a company, from entrepreneurs and industry experts, who have all walked in the same startup shoes as you. As well as knowledge based on real world, locally relevant examples; you will get practical tools, guides and templates you can use the next day to help you launch, pivot and scale your business. While other incubators are only open to a select few companies, that are chosen a couple of times a year, ours is open to all.
And the best part? It’s all done on your own time, through our online learning management system, so you can fit it around your work, your kids, your life.
