We provide the minimum requirements an entrepreneur shall meet prior joining the lab. We receive the idea and provide feedback for the entrepreneur to work on it. We set up a pitch day and the entrepreneurs presents twice. First a 6 minute presentation and a 10’ Q&A in which we provide feedback. After 1 hour a 30’ presentation with 30’ Q&A as a discussion. Based on the maturity of the idea the entrepreneurs joins our accelerator program. Ideas that need further development are rescheduled for a second set of presentations.
We mentor the ideas for 2-6 months based on their maturity. We provided mentorship from leading academies, entrepreneurs and investors. We arrange pitches to industry experts and investors. We help entrepreneurs develop a full business plan, an executive business plan, networks and partnerships, presentation decks and a solid financial plan. We help entrepreneurs develop their presentation skills (oral, speech pace and volume, formality). We provides a certificate of completing the acceptation program.
We provide opportunities for further pitching to local, regional and intentional competitions. We link them with investors globally based on their type of idea. We coordinate their communication with part as part of their team. We provide legal assistance and Intellectual Property Rights support.
