Discovering potential innovators and offering them a conducive ecosystem are crucial elements of incubation management, relying solely on the potential discovery and offering them an ecosystem is unscientific and ineffectual as well. Apart from the infrastructure and networking support, innovators & startup founders do more importantly need enough decision-making potential to mitigate their inherent risks on aspects of dealing with customers, product, market & growth

To sum up founders require necessary skills and competencies in key functional areas of technology, innovation, business strategy and development, financial planning, operations, etc. to name a few, which needs to be developed through a structured and systematic approach via essential training and mentoring to mitigate their associated risks.

At Forge, we offer a portfolio of innovation camps and workshops by qualified domain experts with the requisite market experience and competencies that enable innovators, mentors, product leaders, and startup founders to come up with and execute better decisions.
