Go Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
We Solve Real Problems
Program in Brief
The AIC RAISE pre-incubation program enables innovators to build their startups by synergizing their business plan with global best practices, thereby helping them to successfully enter the market and scale up their business. The pre-incubation program is a 9-week intensive business program. It starts with the online program Introduction to Innovation that prepares the entrepreneurs for the upcoming sessions. For the following eight weeks, the startups will be inducted and trained on the essentials of entrepreneurship. Upon graduation from the 9 weeks program startups will receive a certificate and successful startups will be selected for long-term incubation at the AIC RAISE incubator for an additional 6 months.
The Sky's The Limit
AIC RAISE will initially select up to 15 start-ups for our 4 weeks
“pre-incubation phase”. We will work together with you to sharpen your value proposition, define your target market, get market feedback on your product/technology, and create and achieve milestones to bring your company to the market.
A key part of our methodology is “getting out of the building” to collect real market data and understand the voice of the customer. Hands-on training programs will take place at AIC RAISE for the physical program. Otherwise, there is a virtual program for the same. Upon completion of the 4 weeks’ program, we will select the qualified startups to incubate at AIC RAISE for a longer, more in-depth incubation period. These companies will have full access to the incubator facilities and network for up to an additional 6 months. During this time we will work with you to take your company to the next level on getting your product to market, growing your customer and revenue base, and, if appropriate, work to get you funding for scaling up operations and market growth. Companies selected for long term incubation will sign an MoU with AIC RAISE.
