ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Aimed at ISDI students and xISDI worldwide who are leading technology-based projects between definition, pre-seed and seed stage
Potential entrepreneurs with an association with ISDI are helped on the journey to creating a startup company. Participants will have access to training, mentoring, investors, among other services, to take their idea and convert it into a successful commercial venture.
After the experience of helping several startups scaling up their projects, the approach is demonstrated to be effective.
The incubation program will be delivered in two phases: ISDI Start and ISDI Start UP.
Every person interested will have the opportunity to join ISDI Start, a nine-day online training bootcamp with a very practical
approach that will help participants to work on their value proposition, team definition, prototyping, technology & operations, go to market and pitching.
After this initial phase, up to 5 finalists will be invited to join ISDI Start UP for the development of an MVP in three months in which ISDI provides a number of benefits (two-month online incubation program, demo day and other events, visibility, access to relevant investors and corporates and external services at favorable conditions, etc) in exchange for a percentage of the startup equity.
