The SIP begins with TES Team’s kick-off meeting with the Founder. Our Faculty, Mentors and Advisors, work with you to identify the expertise and resources that will benefit your venture the most.
TES Incubation Model
This meeting helps address tactical needs identified through the strategy sessions or through other informal interactions. You also receive regular education and networking programs. We also address the shared needs identified among incubator clients. This provides a built-in network of support among like-minded peers.
Your venture shall progress through various stages of venture development.
Stage 1: Our Mentors and Faculty work with you to sharpen your venture. We spend about a tenth of our time working on the larger picture for the venture.
Stage 2: This is a rapid phase of planning out the venture. But we keep reviewing and re-adjusting the plan through structured Monday Meetings.
Stage 3: A critical stage in SIP. You build a quick and dirty product, which is taken to customers and users, and then we iterate, as often as possible. We use feedback gathered to pivot the venture rapidly.
Stage 4: This is when you launch the product or service that people want.
SIP Graduation takes place when the venture achieves a level of financial and venture growth that enables them to leave the incubator and enter the second stage of venture development. This should ideally happen in 6 months. In a few cases, TES is open to extending the incubation period.
SIP is a complete “inspiration to action” incubation program
