Our incubation service follows a standardized three phase approach; engage, equip, unleash.

At the engage phase we assess the entrepreneur to check if the business idea is feasible and the founders are reliable. Once the entrepreneur passes this stage their financial capacity is assessed if they can pay for the service. For those that do not have the financial capacity a sponsor or loan is sought for.


The equip stage is where the entrepreneur is coached, trained and availed other supports to put the business on the ground and make it profitable. While we work to make the business profitable, we equally focus on the founder and staff to create a team that can sustain and grow the vision.
