Selection process
  • 1. Application
  • Our process starts with the submission of the completed application form. We review and evaluate the competence and professional background of the project team, as well as the business opportunity to exploit, the business model and the requested incubation services. The Investment Committee decides about the applications on a rolling basis. If the Committee finds that a project potentially fits the incubator’s profile, the project is forwarded for business evaluation.

  • 2. Evaluation
  • The incubator’s professional team, also involving external experts, if necessary, reviews the project in detail. The owners with experience in the given market segment also participate in the personal meetings during the evaluation process. The purpose of the evaluation is to assess the competences and motivations of the project team, the competitiveness of the project, product or service, the potential of the business model, the pricing strategy, a potential distribution strategy, the possible timeline, milestones, incubation requirements, business plan and source demands of the project, as well as other details which are essential for an investment decision. The detailed business evaluation is discussed by the Investment Committee.
  • 3. Incubation Plan
  • If, based on the evaluation, the Investment Committee makes a positive decision on the acceptance of the project, the incubator’s management will discuss and draw up an incubation plan with the managers of the selected project. This will cover the goals and operative tasks of the incubation period, the tailored service package provided by the incubator, a proposed timeline, financing plan of incubation and the terms and conditions of investment. The acceptance of the incubation plan (i.e. the final acceptance of the project) is decided upon by the Investment Committee.
