InCUBE8 is a business incubator/accelerator founded in early 2016 with the aim of confronting the growing problem of youth unemployment and startup failure by creating an ecosystem where innovative entrepreneurs can be nurtured and grow into the next generation of successful business leaders. InCUBE8 provides a vibrant ecosystem of young innovative entrepreneurs enriched with the mentorship, technical and financial support they need to succeed.
The program will seek out and enroll youth led startups with innovative high growth and high impact ventures that can be refined
and brought to market through the business incubation/accelerator program. These startups are evaluated on their innovativeness,
scalability and impact on the market their in and community around them. The Incubation program is where the selected members will
receive mentoring, business development training, administrative and funding support to test their models and focus on execution.
The program covers a ten-week period with weekly tasks that are aimed to equip the members with the skills that will enable them to be successful.
After much thought and research, with the help of SBE and incubation experts both local and foreign, the 8 Principles of InCUBE8 were born, which collectively make up a new innovative and holistic approach to the incubation process that aims to cover all aspects of becoming a successful entrepreneur and a contributing member of society. Our eight principles are Peer to Peer Collaboration, Mentoring, Startup Toolkit, Networking Entrepreneurial Ecosystem, Seed Capital, The YETY Awards (Young Entrepreneur of the Year) and Alumni Reciprocation.
