The GrowthHub's Idea-to-Innovation (I2I) program is designed to take great ideas and turn them into viable products and services.

10 teams will work along side each other at The GrowthHub under the guidance of experience facilitators and mentors. The initial 6 weeks will be spent on refining the idea and planning the testing or piloting of it. At the end of the first 6 weeks, the entrepreneurs will pitch their plans to a group of investments and business angles, who will select the best 5 plans. These 5 teams will receive USD 5,000 towards the implementation of the piloting/testing plan.

The successful 5 teams will then work on the implementation of the plan for another 10 weeks, again guided by our experience facilitators and team of mentors. Once the implementation of the plans are finished the teams will pitch the outcome to the investors they received the money from, and they will decide if they will fund the start-up towards the launch of the product or service.
