One size does not fit all – we help you lift from where you stand – from ideation to self assessment to research and MVP – even intro's to accelerators if and when you get to that stage of growth.
Apply for our incubation program to give you the expertise and resources you need to move your business from ideation to revenue. Once you have filled out the application a Chicostart team member will contact you and determine whether you will be accepted into the program.
Application, assessment, and then acceptance will be based on readiness and availability of resources.
