Yahoo News: Toronto Incubator INcubes Embraces Tech Mavericks
Local start up incubator looks to turn Canadian tech pioneers into international sensations.
(PRWEB) January 13, 2012
INcubes offers a customized and condensed curriculum for start ups, with the goal on enriching each entrepreneur with the integral survival and growth skills necessary to take their business through funding to market.
“Unlike many other incubators, our program isn’t solely focused on acceleration. Instead, it’s about providing each start up with exactly what they need for success. As a privately run organization, we don’t have to conform to any ‘mold’ required by institutionalized or academic incubators.” said A. Traviss Corry, Director of Business Development at INcubes.
The team has already received pitches from businesses across Canada. After screening the initial submissions, they managed to narrow it down to forty finalists, including an open platform for cities, governments and NGOs, and a means to revolutionize digital receipts.
“The core concept of our business is to embrace the tech maverick. They have ideas that aren’t simple or easy, but foster change and opportunity for people all around the world. As the test market capital of North America, there’s no better city than Toronto to grow these thought-leaders and innovations,” said Ben Zlotnick, founder of INcubes.
INcubes is currently accepting applications for Startup INtake 02 Spring 2012. For details, visithttp://incubes.ca/for_startups.
INcubes is a Toronto based incubator that sources emerging entrepreneurs and talented start up teams, and graduates qualified businesses with innovative products and ideas towards their first round of capital. INcubes connects with the most forward-thinking and grass-roots Canadian talent with the goals of transforming their new and disruptive technologies into international sensations.

[IN]tensive Day 02 - INtake 01
Last week’s INtensive Day was exciting at [IN]cubes, with visits from 4 impressive industry professionals, who advised our startups on valuable topics.
Gerard Buckley came [IN] for his first of many sessions at [IN]cubes. The session began with some tasty breakfast, elevator pitch practices, before his talk: Bootstrapping Your Startup. Gerard’s wealth of financial knowledge is enriching.
We had an improptu visit from one of our mentors, Nicholas Heller - Google Europe’s Head of New Business Development. He sat down with our startups and provided them with valuable tips and feedback. We’re lucky to have a mentor who is such a big player [IN] Europe. Nicholas is based out of Zürich, Switzerland with strong ties to his home town, Toronto.
Round discussion, with INcubes Mentor Nicholas Heller, Anton Belov, A. Traviss Corry, Ben Zlotnick, Jeremy Campbell, Vern Walter, and Garin Kilpatrick.
In the afternoon we had an inspiring talk from our mentor George Marsland - Building a Toolkit for Post INcubation. His talk started with his encouraging our startups to give thought to their own “integrity” and broke the founders out of their technical mindsets for a moment to get back to giving thought to the ethos they are creating as they lead their organizations toward growth and are laying the foundations of their future corporate culture. Topics like, how to create a “horizon map” and how to set up “listening posts” to “funnel” ongoing innovation into your organization.

Malgosia Green was our final mentor of the day. Her extensive background in product management, made her the perfect mentor to come [IN] and speak on Planning Product Management for Your Startup. Her stories of user interface development, related to the success of her own business, gave our startups ideas for their own ventures.
