BIG Gets You From Idea to Sustainable Business
BIG Incubator 2017 has 5 components. Every step ends with 2 things. (1) Pitch – summarizing the business problem and how you are addressing it. (2). Choice – you and BIG decide what’s next: “Is entrepreneurship for you?” “Has the idea progressed enough to be ready for product development and team building?”
START gets you ready. This is an invite-only weekend (May 5-7th) held at the BIG Innovation Center for the for the most promising founders. It’s a weekend of ideation, pitching, feedback and networking. From this weekend, we chose the cohort of the BIG Incubator.
If you are chosen, you are expected to be in Atlanta on May 22nd, ready to jump into Module-1.
Module-1 moves ideas into potential companies, developing Product/Market fit through Customer Discovery, Business Model Canvas, and an initial Minimally Viable Product (MVP).
Module-2 expands the MVP into Product Development, getting initial traction in the market, expanding your team to include a 2nd member.
Module-3 focuses on your Company and what it needs: demonstrated growth, technology components, and legal, financial, investor, marketin
Demo Day is your day in front of investors, BIG Pathway Partners and the broader entrepreneurial community. Show who you are, what you have, why it’s important and what you need to move from a late-early stage startup – whether you’re ready for funding, wanting to go to an Accelerator to further your company’s development, or ready to go out on your own.
