With the launch of its seventh cohort on June 10, Nexus added yet another group of innovative startups to its ever growing portfolio.
After a rigorous selection process, 11 startups were selected from over 125 applications. These startups will undergo an intensive 10-week “pre-incubation” program where they will be trained in practical topics of entrepreneurship such as finances, market validation, intellectual property, funding and more.
As Nexus is sector agnostic, the startups have a wide variety of products/services ranging from solar water ATMs, paperless receipts solution to a mushroom production company providing work to more than 2000 women.
Once the startups graduate the program in March, a select few will be offered the chance for long-term incubation of up to eight additional months at the Nexus Center.
