Enterprise Development

Eco-system support

Eco-system support

We believe in developing a culture of entrepreneurship that empowers and rewards individuals working for realizing their dreams and ideas. We are partnering with universities, government and private incubators/accelerators to build their capacity to evolve an ecosystem driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, especially among the youth and women. Our work includes the following:

  • Establishment of Incubators
  • Business Incubation Management
  • Business Plan Competitions
  • Pre-Incubation, Incubation and Acceleration

Business Model Validation Lab

This comprehensive, time-tested program provides early-stage entrepreneurs with a step-by-step methodology to rapidly and systematically validate their venture’s business model.


  • Identify the foundational assumptions that underpin their venture
  • Design and run experiments to validate/invalidate those foundational assumptions
  • Meet with mentors to get feedback and develop next steps

By the end of the Lab, entrepreneurs would have:

  • Learned a repeatable methodology for how to do customer discovery
  • Built 2-3 prototypes of a key element of their venture
  • Tested prototypes with real customers
  • Learned how to build and maintain mentor relationships
  • Met and received feedback from 2 to 3 mentors per team
  • Conducted a break-even analysis of their business and identified the key cost and financial assumptions of their business
  • Built out a basic budget and financial model
  • Created a 6-month operating plan

Investment Preparedness Lab:

A comprehensive program in partnership with Uncharted, a U.S. institute based out of Colorado, U.S. which helps growth-stage entrepreneurs become more prepared to raise funding.

Entrepreneurs will:

  • Understand the steps of the investment process and what is needed, in order to be prepared at each step
  • Diagnose where a venture is in preparedness for those steps, build a full plan for how to get ready, and actively work to get more prepared
  • Meet with actual funders to get feedback and practice building investor interest

By the end of the Lab, entrepreneurs will have something to show for their work. They will have:

  • Learned what the fundraising process looks like from start to finish and the elements needed to succeed in raising funding
  • Diagnosed how prepared (or unprepared) they are on these various elements of funding preparedness, giving them a snapshot of where they are
  • Actively worked on various elements to become more prepared to raise funding (for example: develop their financials, write a strategic plan, clarify their funding ask, develop their pitch materials)
  • Created a list of at least 30 potential funders and learned quick research and outreach techniques to find and connect with even more funders when they leave
  • Learned a methodology for how to build strong relationships with funders – relationships that get stronger over time which will help make their funding case stronger
  • Completed funding readiness “reality checks” with 2 – 3 real funders and received real and honest feedback on their investment preparedness
  • Designed a strategic plan to become funding ready and identified the tools to get there
  • Drastically increased their confidence level about leading an investor meeting which will lead to far more productive meetings with future potential funders
