We understand that as a founder, you are caught up in a whirlwind of fundraising, product development, marketing, and recruitment. Our program offers startups the right kind of strategic support while keeping an eye on the big picture.
AIC ISB’s incubation program accepts applications consistently throughout the year, with no limiting cohorts.
The incubation program is designed to support startups across domains. The various parameters against which a startup is evaluated include:
AIC ISB’s Incubation Programme is of 6-12 months duration.
A startup with a validated business idea (POC) and looking for:
– Assistance with Go-to-Market Strategy
– Mentor engagement and strategic guidance
– Industry connects with leading corporates
– Assistance in scaling-up
– Assistance with funding
The application process begins with startups submitting an online application. Once received, the internal team reviews it as soon as possible and shortlists the startups depending on merit of proof of concept, relevant experience, level of commitment and overall fit with the offerings of the incubation programme. Following this, in depth analysis of the application is done by an external committee which includes industry experts. As a final step, startup selection is done and onboarding formalities are initiated. The entire selection process is a 3-4 week journey starting from submitting the application form
We are flexible about it, but In order to achieve most out of the programme, we expect considerable time to be spent with the founder(s) and the founding team
During the incubation period, startups are made investment ready and depending on the requirement will be given access to relevant investors (ISB Angel Network and external investors)
