The RLabs Innovation Incubator provides community members with a shared space to develop their ideas and ventures with support from the experienced RLabs developer and entrepreneurship network. It also offers a program of related activities to deepen the understanding of entrepreneurship and innovation.
The main criteria for ventures to be hosted in the incubator are that it should have a social impact, be sustainable and show potential for growth. The Innovation Incubator will have the following components to it:
1) Creative Shared Space – is an open environment where entrepreneurs and innovators can use the infrastructure and resources at RLabs to grow their ventures. These include connectivity, access to specialised skills (development, finance etc.), meeting room and opportunity to connect with other great individuals.
2) Innovation Programme – the ventures are part of an innovation programme that assists social entrepreneurs and innovators in developing their ideas and providing mentorship.
3) (Social) Entrepreneurship Programme – members of the innovation incubator can join the RLabs entrepreneurship programme that will provide them with the guidelines in developing their social ventures and businesses.
4) Impact Investment – through a variety of partnerships RLabs currently provides an investment of up to $20,000 for every social enterprise incubated through our programme.
