WE ARE LOOKING FOR INNOVATIVE ENTREPRENEURS WHOSE PROJECTS COMBINE NEW APPROACHES AND DARING IDEAS WITH REAL MARKET POTENTIAL AND GLOBAL AMBITION.
THE PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE SUPPORT FROM A GLOBAL NETWORK OF MENTORS, NETWORKING, TRAINING AND ACCESS TO OPPORTUNITIES THAT WILL HELP TO STIMULATE GROWTH. WE LOOK TO NOT ONLY PROVIDE CAPITAL, BUT ALSO BRING THE KNOWLEDGE, COMPETENCE, AND EXPERIENCE OF OURSELVES AND OUR INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS.
OUR PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO WORK WITH COMPANIES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEGUN TO TEST PRODUCT-MARKET FIT, AND HAVE TRACTION. WE WANT TO WORK ALONGSIDE COMPANIES DURING THEIR NORMAL COURSE OF BUSINESS, AND NOT DISRUPT IT. THEREFORE WE AIM TO INDIVIDUALLY TAILOR THE PROGRAM FOR EACH WINNING APPLICATION ACCORDING TO THEIR MOST CRITICAL BUSINESS NEEDS.
OUR PROGRAM RULES ARE EXTREMELY TRANSPARENT.
The basic contract, signed with the selected companies, will be a document prepared together with Fundacja Startup Poland (Startup Poland Foundation).
During the recruitment process 10 finalist companies will be selected. These finalists will participate in a dedicated event at Campus Warsaw on 22nd September 2017 where they will pitch their projects and participate in a coaching session with mentors and jurors. At this event, up to 5 winning companies will be selected to participate in the InCredibles program. Then on 23rd September 2017 work-shops run by a special guest will take place for the selected finalists.
The winning companies selected for the InCredibles program will receive an initial grant of USD 50,000. At the end of the program there will also be an additional award, either in the form of a grant or convertible note – the value may depend by company.
The initiator of InCredibles is the leader of a new generation of Polish businessmen. For over 18 years he has been investing in technology companies. He gained his business acumen by working for large global corporations, such as Lazard, an investment bank in London, as well as the digital media department of Sony BMG in New York.
The InCredibles project counselor is the CEO of Campus Warsaw, who has been involved in the startup sector for more than 20 years. He was the founder and CEO of Internet Technologies, one of the first Polish internet service providers.
ALL PROGRAM EVENTS WILL BE HELD AT CAMPUS WARSAW – A PLACE CREATED BY GOOGLE TO SUPPORT THE POLISH TECH ENTREPRENEURS SCENE.
