As a seed stage technology startup, your chances of succeeding - both on i2X and in business - dramatically increase with you become part of a leading incubator / accelerator, or join a local startup community. We strongly encourage you to connect to our partners, and become part of the i2X incubation ecosystem.
As a rule of thumb,
- incubators / accelerators are much harder to get into, but provide you with significant resources ($10-25k of funding for 3 months, heavy mentoring and business connectivity
- startup communities are free and meet up monthly or weekly. You can connect with other entrepreneurs and often get access to important mentors and investors.
- shared office and incubation spaces charge $250-$400 a month in exchange for a shared office space. It's a great way to have a place to work, connect to other entrepreneurs.
The best way to go is to apply for an accelerator program, and combine 2. and 3. as long as you are on your own.
