Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can we be a part of incubator even before we start a company?

    Every incubator has a criteria for selection. One of the basic criteria for incubation is a registered entity. However, many incubators have a pre-incubation program where they onboard individuals who are in the ideation stage. Once the legal entity is registered, they move the incubatee from pre-incubation to incubation phase.

  • What is the difference between an incubator and an accelerator?

    Incubators typically provide holistic services such as physical office space, mentoring, capability building, seed funding, technology support for a period of up to 2 years. They focus on idea to PoC stage companies. Accelerators are focused short term programs (couple of weeks to a couple of months) focused on specifics such as market access, funding etc. The focus is more on scaling companies which have already crossed PoC stage and are looking at scaling up. Some of the well-known accelerator programs in India are given below 1) Next Big Idea – Zone Startups India 2) Empower – Zone Startups India 3) Sheltertech Accelerator – CIIE, IIM Ahmedabad 4) IoT Innovation Accelerator – CIIE, IIM Ahmedabad 5) Financial Inclusion Lab – CIIE, IIM Ahmedabad

  • If I already have an existing business and team, can I still get incubated? Will I get funding?
