We regularly connect with many start-ups that are at early stages and need incubation support. We can provide you with a carefully curated group of high-potential startups for you to pick from.
After setting up your center’s core operational framework, ongoing engagement between your incubated ventures and our team of mentors will help you achieve your center’s goal of being recognized as an institution that builds and scales high-quality ventures.
Your start-ups will have the unique opportunity of interacting with the larger community of others that we support at other partner institutions. Such community interaction by your start-ups plays a crucial role in their development and will spur their growth.

Start-ups aspiring to be a global venture can immensely benefit from international go-to-market partners. We help startups from your region find the right kind of partners from international geographies.

We have on board a highly accomplished team who have guided hundreds of entrepreneurs in realizing their potential and set them on the path of becoming world-class, global ventures. Members of our team have extensive entrepreneurial experience of their own and have also mentored at academic institutions and other organizations in encouraging and setting up entrepreneurial practices.
Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting mentoring. Please include a brief write-up of your idea, and details of the assistance you require from Excubator. This helps our mentors focus on helping you, not just understanding your venture.
No! All our mentoring sessions are pro bono, and our objective is to help you as much as we can during these sessions. However, after the first mentoring session, additional sessions with mentors will be scheduled .. based on your request .. only if you make progress.
Excubator has a strong set of mentors, and all of them have either prior start up experience or a strong intrapreneurial stint during their corporate career. You can see their profiles in the “Team” tab.
No. We regularly see a number of ideas in similar domains, and with similar products, from many entrepreneurs. We do not share these details with other ventures, but we do indicate potential competition in the space to you. This helps you to re-assess your own business for viability.
No. Business accelerators typically work in “batches”. We pick ventures for our portfolio all through the year. And we pick them after meeting them multiple times, assessing the progress they have made and understanding how we could assist them in becoming truly large.
Well, yes and no. We work with incubators at academic institutions to help them set up, manage and scale the ventures they incubate. In many cases, we even present appropriate startups to them for them to pick for incubation. But we (as Excubator) pick just about 2% of the ventures we meet to accept them directly into our own portfolio.
Not directly. Excubator works with a large ecosystem of both angel investors as well as seasoned VCs to help specific entrepreneurs raise funding for their ventures.
Well … yes. But if that’s pretty much all that you think you need, we’d be happy to send you the list of possible VCs and Angels you could connect up with on your own. Better still, we can connect you to professional fund raisers who would be happy to work with you.
Yes, we do … but only in our Portfolio companies. Depending on the stage of the venture, this equity position could be anywhere 6% to 12% in return for the services that we provide.
Yes, of course! Write to us at email@example.com and take a look at the “About Us” tab. We have a specific section on what we can do for enterprises, and we’d be happy to craft a program that will work for you
Yes, of course! Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and take a look at the “About Us” tab. Some of what we do is mentioned in the “Incubators” sub-tab there, but we’d be happy to understand your goals and see how we could be of assistance.
