Incubation program

by BIRD Incubator

Incubation is a free 6-month, in-person program intended for early-stage, AI-focused startups. It is divided into two stages. The first stage is more structured, focusing on supplying all startups with the same base knowledge through workshops, extracurricular events, and mentorship. The second stage is less structured, focusing on each startup individually to help them achieve their goals, whether it’s funding, traction, or tech development, by the end of the incubation.

Program agenda & mentors

The first stage of the incubation program starts in the first week of October. Comprised of 12 weeks in total, each week represents one topic that the startups will cover to have the same level of knowledge and understanding before going into the next stage. Each week will consist of workshops hosted by our trusted mentors and outside experts.

 

During the incubation program, startups will also attend an array of extracurricular activities designed to enrich their entrepreneurial journey. Some of these include personalized mentoring sessions, interactive “Founders Forge” workshops for finding potential co-founders, and regular office hours with industry experts offering specialized guidance. Additionally, engaging sessions featuring success stories from seasoned startup founders and fireside chats covering diverse topics will inspire and inform participants throughout their incubation experience.
