Mentoring

The foundations of Ideal Incubator were built on a simple belief that cultivating Tamil entrepreneurs will lead to sustainable cycles of wealth creation and capture the true essence of what it means to give back to the community. That is exactly why professional relationship development is an integral part of what we offer.

Networking

Networking is all about who you know and meeting the right people to continuously connect you in the right direction. A mutually beneficial alliance will help you both learn and grow your business goals. Our mentors will assist you in expanding your local and global network so that you build a portfolio of potential investors, partners and advisors for your current and/or future venture. After all, “your network is your net worth” (Porter Gale, 2013).

Nurturing

Kick-start programs offered at Ideal Incubator provide much more than mentorship. Not sure how to develop or market your business? Don’t worry — we’ve got you. From external and internal resources to office space and legal counsel, at Ideal Incubator we take entrepreneurs under our wing in order to provide expert consulting needed to start and grow a business.

Learning

Ideal Incubator hosts several programs and workshops. These workshops run so that Tamil entrepreneurs can learn the necessary tools needed to launch and develop new companies including (but not limited to) the Lean Startup method, customer development and finding appropriate product market fit. These resources are offered regularly in order to keep up with the demands of a growing entrepreneurial market space.

Funding

We support new ventures with recognizable potential that are in their early stages of development. Selected Tamil entrepreneurs have the opportunity to receive up to $50,000 CAD in seed funding to develop their prototype or proof of concept, an Ideal Incubator mentor, access to industry leadership networks and corporate partners (both within and outside the Tamil community) and a workspace operated by Ideal Incubator.
