Start up and Incubation

A Start up is born when an innovative idea meets with Funding, be its own or from VC, Angel investors.

Start up Dilemma

  1. How good is the Idea to build the commercial business ?
  2. How to validate the business idea and business assumptions?
  3. Will the new venture succeed and sustain?
  4. How to convert the Idea from Concept to Commercialization?
  5. What are the likely resource bottlenecks that should be overcome in start up phase?
  6. How the venture will manage competition and business environment and controls?
  7. How can we plan and organize knowing the Risk/Return Matrix?
  8. Will the venture attract Funding?
  9. How can we grow and scale the business?
  10. Do we add value to the business?

We help you to validate your idea, refine the Business model, strategy and scalability so that the prospect of commercial success is high. Only scalable, commercially viable projects would attract funding. So, validation will save time, money and efforts for Start ups to decide the next steps whether to proceed with funding and  decide the scale of operations.

We have devised a unique 9 C Strategic Framework and will analyse your detailed Business Plan to evaluate the attractiveness of your start up and its operational model. This will help in planning for realistic projections, sales volumes, operational risks and returns to decide the quantum and phases of funding.

We have a partner eCoSystem  to support your early stage efforts that has selective tie ups for Funding.  We offer mentoring services for early stage field validation or during the process of Funding which may take around 3-6 months or more.
