The CUBE Incubation Accelerator is accepting applications for its "elevated pitch session" from entrepreneurs who need help with the early stages of their businesses.
The session will have aspiring business-folk pitch their ideas to the CUBE Faculty from an elevated platform and, if selected, will go on to be supported by the company by reducing start-up barriers for those who have ideas, but lack experience or confidence.
“We are excited to harness entrepreneurial potential from across the Island and position entrepreneurs for market success and further investment,” said Andrew MacEwen, Faculty founder at the CUBE Incubator.
The group of selected entrepreneurs will start in late fall. They will receive support and resources aligned with their needs, along with positioning to get more rounds of funding in the future.
Beyond financial support, those who join the cohort will get guidance from a network of leaders to help guide their business, from concept prototyping to positioning for sales or revenue growth.
“We work with prospect entrepreneurs to refine and position their "elevated pitch"; and become investment ready. The CUBE is a start-up catalyst intended to increase the potential for market success”, said Blake Doyle, another Faculty founder.
Aspiring or existing entrepreneurs are welcome; as are mentor contributors and early seed social capitalists and investors.
