The three-year business development programme will be in four phases: pre incubation, early stage, classic incubation and graduation. In the first stage, incubatees are asked to prepare their business plan and develop it to be then evaluated and selected by an assessment panel. If their plan is accepted, the incubatees will advance to the next stages. Here, they are provided with IT infrastructure, client support services, team-building activities, and business development workshops.
