Start Ups
  1. Why should my start-up join the community?
  2. Start Up Habitat is designed to connect entrepreneurial communities globally by way of connecting start up incubators, accelerators, online communities, blog and of course, start-up founders together. This enables each stakeholder to immediately get international exposure to their target markets, and makes the start-up community globally a more open and connected one.

    Apart from the office space in incubators worldwide, the real value is provided in the mentorship and advice you can obtain from incubators and their affiliated investment partners, mentors, and advisors. Further, the networking opportunities within the start-up community through the forum would assist you in your entrepreneurial journey.

  3. What are the costs of joining?
  4. Joining is absolutely free. However, in order to book an “exchange” with an incubator, you should sign up for a membership, which entitles you to ten working days per year, which you can use across any of the incubators worldwide.

  5. How can I benefit from joining the community?
  6. As start-up companies, registering your membership will enable you to access the forums where you can meet other start-ups and interact with them. You may also search for service providers that may provide services specifically to help start-up companies. While we build our membership base, you will start to see more exciting services being provided by these service providers.

    When subscribing to our paid membership services, it is important for you to have some clear objectives in mind, especially when applying for an “exchange” with an incubator of your choice. This will allow you to make the most out of your exchange with the incubator, and incentivizes the incubators hosting the exchange.

    The more time and effort you put into marketing yourself through your profile, the more able you are to market yourself, and describe your needs to incubators. The international exposure through interaction with other start-up companies will also provide international learning opportunities to raise the bar on innovation in your value proposition.

    We are always happy to have feedback to improve the user experience, or to add more features that may serve you better. Do let us know if you have any comments by contacting us. <link to contact us page>
