I-NSPIRE is designed to enable participants to improve their Entrepreneurial Quotient and capabilities for commercialising their ideas and innovations. Focussing on science-based ideas, the program drives the founders to clearly define the core problem that they are aiming to solve and to understand what finding a problem-solution fit entails.

Our mission is to enhance the Entrepreneurial
Quotient of participants

How the program works

Teams comprise at least 2 Entrepreneur Leads (including one Technical Lead), supported by a Business Mentor (from our network of mentors)

  • Around 10 teams comprise a cohort.
  • Every team meets 30 – 50 potential customers and stakeholders to better define the problem they are solving with their innovation.
  • Teams understand the evolution trajectory of their start-up from idea to the MVP stage and onto a product-market fit.
  • Teams develop an entrepreneurial mind-set.
