The BIG Model: It's more than an Incubator

BIG is more than an incubator- it's a direct pathway into the innovation economy for women of color. The BIG process begins with START, an invite-only weekend of ideation, pitching, feedback and networking. From this weekend, we chose the cohort of the BIG Incubator

Our evidence-based incubator model is divided into three parts: Customer Development, Product Development, and Company Development.

Customer Development

Module 1:
Customer Development

Customer Development moves ideas into potential companies, developing Product/Market fit through Customer Discovery, Business Model Canvas, and an Minimally Viable Product (MVP).

Product Development

Module 2:
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Product Development focuses on expanding the MVP into a working product with initial market traction with a focus on building a team.

Company Development

Module 3:
COMPANY DEVELOPMENT

Company Development focuses on your Company and what it needs:  demonstrated growth, technology components, and legal, financial, investor, marketing structural elements.  

Demo Day

The incubator culminates in a demo day, where members of the cohort demo their product/company to an audience of active investors, potential corporate partners, and community members.
