A startup incubator for ITU students

The programme is a 3 stage incubation process where we aim to grow companies from "Proof of Idea" to "Proof of Business". We ensure that participants get the proper skills, tools, advice and network to reach their objectives and we prepare the teams for further investments. We see this as the perfect launchpad into the startup ecosystem for student entrepreneurs.

Proof of Idea

Work on your idea and turn it into a valuable startup. Figure out a problem worth solving and build a working prototype.

Proof of Concept

Grow your startup and your userbase together with your customers while improving your product and your partnerships

Proof of Business

Scale-up your business with more resources and grow into a valuable business that can attract the right seed investments
