“A 360′ experience grounding your dream into reality”
Hubcubation is an intensive 6-months program helping you to invest your efforts where it matters most: growing your business to gain a competitive edge by building a strong and stable customer base – as the saying goes: the best investors are your customers. After the program, you will be confident that your business is going to sustain itself thanks to the right products you are offering to the right customers at the right price. You will have learned how to grow your one (wo)man show to become a team manager with a vision for the future. We will have linked you up with matching investors if required. Our building blocks focus on strategy – leadership – finance – marketing & sales – product development – distribution – after sales support – processes & procedures.
Hubcubation is set up as a program for starting entrepreneurs whose business has been in operations for 1 to 3 years. Our unique methodology guides entrepreneurs through the sustainable operationalisation and commercialisation of their enterprise.
August to December 2016
Intensive program where theory from our building blocks is complemented with real life experience through excursions, networking and our signature shadowing track.
January to June 2017
Follow up continues to ensure entrepreneurs keep on the right track. You’re on your own again, but we got your back and continue to organise activities for you to continue to be inspired.
How is this program different from other incubator and accelerator programs out there?
First of all, we don’t run a competition. Secondly, we are not investor driven, meaning our starting point is your needs as an entrepreneur. In our experience, knowledge and execution are the key drivers for success in business. We link you up with suitable investors on a per need basis. Selection of participants shall happen through an assessment centre approach: this assessment is meant to ensure you as a participant will be ready to be taken on our journey.
Applications must be made through our sign-up form before the deadline of 31-July. The program starts on 15-August. Join on of our introduction workshops on Thursday 23 June or Thursday 21 July to get an real life experience of how our program works and how it would benefit your enterprise.
