After successfully running 74 programs and refining our service each time, if there’s one thing we know how to do, that’s it! The design process is tailored to your specific organization’s context, we’ll go in depth about your programs’ “raison d’être”, your strategic challenges and past or current initiatives if any.
With a network of 1000+ entrepreneurs, 30+ ecosystem partners and an easy-to-use selection dashboard, we can help you identify the entrepreneurs you want to support. You can evaluate them via our application system or let us do it.
Your incubation program will be delocalized thanks to our platform. It hosts an industry-validated methodology that helps each innovator develop a business plan at a methodical yet accelerated pace. Teams collaborate step by step and you can track their success via the admin dashboard.
Engage your employees or professionals from your sector by offering an impactful corporate volunteering opportunity. We train them as mentors so they can leverage their skills for good, they learn on the way and make a tangible impact!
Managing your program will be easy, intuitive and scalable. Our platform lets you monitor the evolution of startups as well as learning & satisfaction KPIs all along. After aligning with you on the measured outcomes and surveying participants, we will create an impact report to publish & share!
Upon completing the program, each team obtains their visual business plan, a comprehensive and visual document that has been vetted by the mentor and explains their model with key KPIs. Founders can then pitch to investors & prepare for the journey ahead!
