Apex Startup Centre serves as an ecosystem students to venture into the world of entrepreneurship by connecting academic education with real world business and innovation. The Startup Center helps students and alumni entrepreneurs refine their business ideas, develop business models, and go to market by providing them with seed funding, workspace to mentoring, networking and training from experienced founders, business experts and angel investors involved in the startup ecosystem.
Apex Startup Center has designed a rigorous business incubation program to help aspiring entrepreneurs validate, refine, and develop their ideas into viable businesses. Every year, the center runs two cohorts of its business incubation program for Apexians to convert their ideas into new ventures.This program intends to provide a fast-paced introduction to entrepreneurship with hands-on activities and sessions. Participants of this program will develop an entrepreneurial mindset, and eventually become entrepreneurs operating their own startups by solving problems and capitalizing on opportunities across different sectors.
The startups and entrepreneurs will go through an extensive selection process before being incorporated in the incubator and upon starting their incubation period they will get research support, training, business consultation, technical advice as well as advice on marketing, legal, compliance and accounting. The benefits of joining this incubation program go well beyond the peripheries of Apex, but rather prove them with the opportunity to network with well-established entrepreneurs, angel investors, venture capitalists, private equity firms as well as the startup community and other entrepreneurs to share their experience and knowledge.
This Center is being run in partnership with NEXT Venture Corp, which has a long-standing experience in building the startup ecosystem of Nepal by running incubators, accelerators, invetors network and other entrepreneurship platforms.
