FAQ Is my company a good candidate for the program? We’re seeking early stage clients who are typically pre-revenue. This means a minimal viable product (MVP) is not required. We most importantly want entrepreneurs that are dedicated and comitted to growing their business – whether that be alone or with a team, full-time or part-time. Should I apply to RevUp, MVP to Market, or RIC Centre incubator? Our three programs were designed in a chronological fashion to address the unique needs entrepreneurs have on the journey of bringing their idea to market. RevUp is ideal for early-stage clients who have a great idea for a new business but want help kickstarting their entrepreneurial journey. RevUp gives you the opportunity to learn from expert advisors, connect with a network of local entrepreneurs, and receive the training and resources that will help you succeed!MVP to Market is ideal for those who have an MVP and are looking to make their first sale. In the first half of the program, you will work with our experts to understand financial modeling and projections, learn about investment and government incentive programs, and develop a sound revenue strategy. In the second half, you will work on building your brand through digital marketing, understanding your sales process, and converting leads. The RIC Centre Incubator is ideal for mid-stage clients with a prototype or MVP, validated product demand, and has secured some funding to date. The incubator provides highly customized advisory to push a company towards scale. I've completed the program. What's next for me at RIC? High-potential companies that complete our early stage programming receive priority access to invite-only RIC Centre services like our Champion Series and Angel First Look events. We also encourage these startups to consider continuing on in our MVP to Market program or our 6-month incubator through a streamlined application process. Unsure if RevUP is right for you?
