iHub Fellowship Programme for young entrepreneurs

The iHub Fellowship Programme 2018 is looking to support young innovators, through incubation and acceleration, create sustainable, scalable businesses.

Help will come in the form of a 6-12 month customized training and mentorship program to enable entrepreneurs develop their business and technical acumen. There will also be a general module curriculum for the startups.

This program will also avail iHub resources, on top of taking part in its organized events. This will come in the way of access to co-working space, pocket-friendly meals and meeting rooms.
