When one application period closes, another one opens?! Yes, at least today!
We have just opened a shared call for applications to our pre-incubation program with the Dar Teknohama Business Incubator (DTBi). DTBi is also looking for growth-oriented ICT companies and startups with the same call.
So if you have a disruptive business idea that takes advantage of ICT, and you want to: 1) build it into a demo or prototype, 2) test the feasibility of the idea with the intended market and 3) develop a business model around it, we strongly encourage you to apply!
We ran the first call for pre-incubation program in March 2012 and chose 5 candicates for the initial pre-incubation program. Based on our experiences we have created a more structured program with DTBi, which will be carried out in two phases. The first three months will focus on creating the prototype or demo of the product, and the following three months will focus on the business development and testing the product in the market.
Participants in the pre-incubation program will also be eligible to apply for funding for prototype development from the Innovation Fund for ICT innovations. We are currently working on the final stages with COSTECH to open this fund for applications, and more information will follow soon.
All details and online application form for the pre-incubation and company incubation programs are available on the incubation page:
