One of the goals of Propella is to foster a culture of entrepreneurship and the pre-incubation program is a way to channel the interest in entrepreneurship into a process for developing a new business.
Propella's doors are open to inventors or entrepreneurs who are in the concept stage, but not ready for incubation. They may have a business idea but no plan. These individuals may be faculty or students, or people from the business community and while these individuals may be too early to fully participate in the Propella incubation program, yet they could benefit from other developmental assistance.
In order to gain access to the pre-incubation program, aspirantincubatees need to have completed their draft business plan and successfully presented their business case to the selection panel.
