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.
