Join us in this movement to be bold, adventurous, and unafraid of failing.

The world faces many complex problems that heavily impact the way individuals, companies and institutions interact. Entrepreneurship can help address some of these challenges by driving innovative and unprecedented solutions. Universities are in a unique position to inspire their students to acknowledge real-world problems with an entrepreneurial perspective. Providing a dynamic environment and cooperating closely with corporate partners are necessary prerequisites to realize this vision.
InCube helps to bridge this gap, by bringing together universities, students and companies in an inspiring environment. Working in a confined place provides a special setting where innovative ideas are proposed, planned and executed by driven students. The complimentary educational journey ensures that students are equipped with the proper methodologies, tools and skills to evolve an abstract idea into a prototype that they can develop further.

Launch provides an immersive experience through Workshops, Live Pitch Competition of the InCube Challenge 2021, Panel Discussions, each dealing with a plethora of topics focusing on cutting-edge technologies to how to make a business model future-fit.
