Throughout the one week program, projects will go through a tailored innovation program consisting of workshops, one-on-one investor meetings, and relevant company visits with potential partners, clients, and government. 

The aim of the program is to give projects a chance to meet with local corporates, startups, mentors, investors, and potential partners / clientele to build a network with the local entrepreneurship community. The innovation week will be finished off with another “open pitch day” where the visiting startups can pitch directly to the entire community alongside nihub and partner investors.
