[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.
