The iDendron Incubation Programme (iIP) is a high-impact six-month programme designed to help early-stage startups gain momentum through deep mentor engagement, investor relation building and exposure outreaching. We aim to create a community connecting potential elite founders from a wide spectrum of fields who have a common vision to create an impact on the future world.
All applications will be assessed by the iDendron management team based on:
(i) Product/Services: addressing critical need, disruptive advantage over competition, available market size, degree of technology viability.
(ii) Team: commitment of the team, founders’ relevant experience and skill sets, and marketing & sales expertise or access.
(iii) Development Plan: clearly structured and phased developments, identification of tangible development targets or KPIs for the coming 12 months, realistic financial estimates for each phase.
(iv) Market Positioning: appealing value proposition for targeted customers, identification of product features, competitive difference from market leaders;
(v) Business Model: feasibility of pricing strategy, identification of first and second adopter groups, feasibility of sales channels, partnership plans, cash-flow viability.
We expect commitment from the founders (which is necessary for every surviving startup) while we are here to help and support.
Upon acceptance, startups are expected to submit bimonthly reports followed by face-to-face meetings with iDendron management team for discussing progress or support needed.
Startups are also expected to support iDendron management team in preparing case studies and attending experience sharing events within 12 months following the end of the iIP.
