This is not just two or three day event but an incubation program of four months. The program is to be held in Karachi. Before contacting the authorities you must know which program you are interested in. Nest I/O plans to give you two choices Internal Incubation Program (IIP) and External Incubation Program (EIP).
IIP is for early stage startups and requires a full time commitment at The Nest I/O. The IIP program individuals are also provided office space.
EIP is for startups that have already launched or are ready with their product – they work remotely with The Nest i/o out of their own respective office space. The admission into each of the program depends on the nature and stage of the startup and its viability.
Kindly note that the office is open only Monday to Saturday, 9 am to 6 pm. The Nest I/O only incubates products and not services.
The only thing you have to do is tell the authorities about your idea and yourself. The judges will judge you on the basis of uniqueness of the idea and what homework you have done about it. Another thing is product’s benefits or can it give enough business.
So girls and guys get going and register as soon as possible to avail the opportunity. As opportunity knocks once at the door maybe this is your time to open the door and welcome it.
