The Business Mix
A number of the participants in our Incubator Programme are newly graduated. We realised early on that having external established businesses using the facility further motivated our student start-up businesses as they had an experienced business in the same room to bounce ideas off, discuss and share stories and experiences.
On the opposing side, the established businesses that used our facility stated that they themselves felt invigorated working alongside agile start-up businesses and young people.
From these experiences we believe that having the right mix of businesses can exponentially positively affect the start-ups.
- Try and achieve a good mix of established and start-up businesses to thrive off each other.
