Startups in Cyber Security, IoT or AI read on!
by Startacus Admin
Are you working on a startup working in the Cyber Security, IoT or AI space? Then you might want to read on!
The IncuBus Future of Work is a 12 week incubator programme hosted by PwC which aims to focus on startups in the AI, Cyber Security and IoT solutions space with particular focus here being given to the future of work and the workplace.
Our friends, the aptly name IncuBus (Their first office was located on a renovated double decker London bus) develop early stage startup incubators to get teams ready for accelerators and funding.
So this collaborative opportunity with PwC kicking off on January 18th 2016 seems like a great potential opportunity for early stage startups with a MVP that want to get ready to apply for the world’s best business accelerators and further funding.
George Johnston, Co-founder, IncuBus explained what they saw as the importance of the programme:
Technology is transforming our homes like we've never seen before. Yet the workspace, where we spend 30% of our lives, is being left behind. It is time for the next disruption to take place. As business models and industries are destroyed by innovation, the only way to survive is to be at the forefront of creating new ones. This initiative will ensure the next generation of entrepreneurs have access to market and the support they need to realise the Future of Work.”
Each week the startups will complete 9 hours of tailored programme content (mentor sessions, skills based workshops and office hours), plus additional services and activities to help develop a strong foundation for continued growth beyond the programme (as well as access to the Bus for marketing and showcasing opportunities)!
It’s a 12 week programme which will be based at PwC's London office and there’s a fee of £3000 inc. VAT for those startups taking part. It’s important to note though that there’s no equity taken in return and the fee includes desk space at PwC's London office for all participating startups.
There’s a phased application process which is open until the 3rd of Jan 2016, so perhaps it’d be worthwhile taking a look sooner rather than later. Full details can be found on the IncuBus site and here is a rather handy link to the application page itself.
Good luck to all that apply!
N.B. If you read this post before 17th December and like the sound of IncuBus why not head to TinselTech which is IncuBus’ Christmas party for London's tech community. Taking place at Camden Lock Market, the party will see up to 700 members of London’s startup community gathering together for festive fun. Tickets cost just £5 per person and all proceeds from tickets will be going to the Room to Read charity!
As well as the usual food and drink, TinselTech will also have fun activities such as Sumo Santas, a secret cinema, snow blasters, a grotto with a twist and fun competitions such as the Ice block challenge.
