The National Incubation Center also got global recognition by winning the award for inspiring interior design and architecture at the Asia Pacific Design Award in Bangkok in 2018.
Inclusivity and Diversity
NIC strongly believes in creating an inclusive culture by empowering those marginalized communities which have been neglected for the past several decades. Having a differently-abled friendly building, the NIC has opened the doors for founders who face any physical, visual or hearing impairment. In addition, it’s one of the few facilities which has a daycare center to facilitate the women entrepreneurs. All these facilities makes the National Incubation Center a thriving hub for disruptors, innovators and change-makers.
The mentorship program is designed to accelerate the growth of startups. Our mentors include people who have made it big in the Corporate and the startup World. These industry veterans and domain specialists play an important role in guiding the young founders. The mentoring is tailored to suit an entrepreneur’s particular business and stage of development.
Custom designed curriculum
We at the NIC have developed a 16-week custom designed curriculum for the startups. The courses are divided into two categories depending on whether the startup is at incubation or acceleration stage. The curriculum is delivered by domain experts and covers all the startup development stages from concept to commercialization of a product or service.
Networking & investment opportunities
The NIC is a hub to different events including bootcamps, workshops, conferences, leadership talks and hackathons. In addition, due to strong industry linkages the startups are also encouraged to attend various external networking events. This provides our startups an opportunity to engage and interact with relevant people and form valuable partnerships.
