Meet our 2019 incubator cohort! These entrepreneurs are all eager to dive in and develop their businesses. We are excited to see the progress they make over the course of the 8 month program. Business ideas range from a reusable coffee cup program to composting in remote areas to giving art supplies a second life.
Through the Project Zero Incubator, new business ideas and early start-ups who have a vision to turn waste materials into new products will have the opportunity to create their business plans, learn business operation fundamentals and entrepreneurial skills, connect with mentors, and develop a pitch for the business idea.
The incubator program will run from April to November 2019. Sessions will take place on a monthly basis in Victoria, BC. During the eight month program ventures will receive support to launch their business and contribute to a greener economy. The program is free for all successful applicants.
Through the incubator program our entrepreneurs will be learning about the fundamentals of marketing, operations, finances, leadership and human resources to name a few subjects. We will also be connecting them to mentors and other green minded entrepreneurs in the community.
Every good program needs an inspiring space to operate from! We are fortunate to have theDock providing us with boardroom space for all our sessions. Centrally located in the downtown core, theDock is a coworking space for community builders, social entrepreneurs, creatives and engaged people.
