Incubator program which takes you FROM IDEA TO MVP
As impact STEP -Up aims to :
– Provide support and continuity to entrepreneurs after attending events and start-up competitions
– Bring mentors and resources to support the development of entrepreneurial teams
– Develop financial ties to start- ups in Transylvania with other centers and communities in Europe and America
– Enable locally international ” know- how” on how to build and position your business in regional and global markets
All of this results in the creation of local products and the involvement of local start -ups in the European and global markets .
For this we created StepUP program , the first program in the region aimed at incubating ideas and raising them to the prototype/MVP within 3 months.
We focus on innovative local teams that work directly and intensively to accelerate prototyping methodology using “lean start-up ” .
The program ends with a DEMO Day where graduates are invited to present their products.
