Activate is the pre-incubation program at SSE Business Lab which aims to let students and alumni test their ideas during an intensive activation period this summer.
Activate serves as a validation pad for teams to develop their venture idea. Three times a year, teams are accepted into summer or semester-long program.
The purpose of the program is to enable venture teams to go from idea to prototype in just a few months and move on to the Incubate program as they finish.
The program begins at the end of June for an 8-week period. During the program, the team will receive office space at A house, themed workshops, personalized mentoring and coaching on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, as well as access to the valuable network of other entrepreneurs in the environment.
