We take our incubation efforts seriously and seek to work with the most impactful and innovative enterprises. Our selection criteria is the intersection of innovation with potential to create large-scale impact, the ability to scale feasibly and achieve financial viability. We look for the following,
Does your solution have a tangible impact on the lives of the underserved? Will you be able to scale your solution to new geographies and markets?
Have you discovered a new and unique solution to address a critical problem?
Are you all in, into the business? Do you have a minimum viable prototype ready?
Have you figured out who your consumer is and the value proposition for them? Do you know how you will price your solution? Has your product been launched in the market?
Are you aware, where demand for your solution would come from? Can your solution work for other markets, geographies or consumers?
Do you have a motivated and passionate team? Does your team have the technical expertise needed? Are you aware of the gaps in skills?
