Incubation Programme

Incubation Programme


The Virtual Incubation Programme of RSTCA is one of the largest of its kind with over 250 revenue generating startups who have successfully graduated from 18 cities. Strategy mentorship with a clear focus on growing your business with minimum resources is the key to the success of our programme.


    We understand that every business is different and needs a unique strategy to be successful. Thus, as part of the incubation programme you will be assigned a mentor who is a successful entrepreneur or an industry expert. Through insightful interactions, your mentor will get to know you at a deeper level, understand your strengths and help you identify opportunities that are crucial for the right strategy for your business.


    The Startup Dashboard is your personalized status dashboard which is the nodal backbone of the programme. It provides you a structured platform to get access to startup resources and support from your mentors. It helps you to keep track of your progress based on the milestones set by your mentors.


    At the end of every month, you receive a personalized progress tracking report. This report is prepared by our team in conjunction with your mentor and other experts. This report highlights the areas of strengths and weaknesses of your startup. The report also provides indicators that helps you to benchmark your progress with other startups in similar domains.


    As an incubatee of RSTCA, you get access to our weekly webinars and priority access to our events. Our webinars give you the opportunity to interact and ask questions to industry experts and mentors. Our Launchpad events are 5-8 hours of power packed business learning bringing together the best minds in the country. Get up close and personal with Millionaires, successful entrepreneurs and industry leaders.


    RSTCA’ incubatees get exclusive access to the startup resources and services. This includes free legal and IT advice. It also includes subsidized services such as Legal Assistance, Website/Web App Development, Mobile App Development, Promo Videos, Content Writing and online/offline marketing.
