Your journey to incubation
STARTS HERE!
The application process reflects our desire to identify early-stage, high-tech start-ups, with innovative and future-orientated solutions, that are globally scalable and backed by inspirational people.
  1. Time to apply
    Now you know how we can support you, it is time to apply! We have designed an application form to help us understand your vision for your startup, which enables us in turn to evaluate its potential for incubation.
  2. Now let's meet
    If your idea is a good fit for incubation, we will be in touch to arrange a first meeting so you can present your project to our consulting team in person. Success here will see you invited to the SPG Academy.
  3. Join the Academy
    During the SPG Academy, we will work with you to prepare your business plan lite, a financial plan and a perfect pitch to be presented to our Project Advisory Board (PAB), which selects which projects to incubate.
  4. Now you're incubated
    If successful at the PAB, you will be invited to join our 18-month incubation programme at the next intake. This is when we look forward to formally welcoming you to our high-tech community.
