Hobby Company is thrilled to introduce the Hobby Incubator Program 2023, designed exclusively for early-stage startup founders. Our program offers comprehensive mentorship and invaluable startup support, guiding you through every step of your entrepreneurial journey – from ideation and market validation to MVP development, launching, gaining traction, creating a pitch deck, and even raising capital.
Why We Decided to Launch Our Own Incubator
At Hobby Company, we're not just another faceless entity in the startup ecosystem – we are experienced startup founders ourselves, having embarked on this exhilarating journey in 2017. Throughout our own entrepreneurial adventures, we've encountered the highs and lows that come with the territory. We intimately understand the challenges that startup founders face at every stage of their pursuit.
We've observed that many existing incubators and accelerators fall short when it comes to truly comprehending the diverse needs of founders in various stages of their journey. Too often, the people behind these "incubators" and "accelerators" lack the foundational startup knowledge and technical expertise required to provide meaningful assistance to struggling founders.
Hobby Incubator stands apart as a 6-month online program that delves deep into the intricacies of the startup process. We leave no stone unturned, guiding you from validating your ideas through engaging with existing customers to defining the right questions for user surveys. We emphasize the importance of measuring meaningful data, not just the number of users, and we equip you with the skills to craft a compelling and effective pitch deck. We even explore innovative strategies for finding investors using platforms like LinkedIn.
A Global Response to Startup Needs
Since launching our program within Startup Facebook groups, we've been overwhelmed by the response. In just a matter of weeks, 130 startup founders from across the globe, including New Zealand, Australia, South Korea, the United States, Germany, Malaysia, and the Philippines, have expressed keen interest in our program.
What sets Hobby Incubator apart is our commitment to providing founders with personalized attention. Over the course of the 6-month program, you'll benefit from 1-on-1 online meetings with experienced mentors from Hobby Company. This individualized guidance is designed to accelerate your startup's growth and development, ensuring that you're well-equipped to face the unique challenges of your entrepreneurial journey.
Our Vision: Beyond Boundaries
The ultimate goal of Hobby Incubator extends far beyond individual startups. While we're dedicated to helping founders achieve product-market fit and scale their businesses, we also have a broader vision in mind. By operating this online program, we aim to make a meaningful contribution to the global startup economy. We want to inspire first-time founders to embrace failure as a stepping stone to their future success.
At Hobby Company, we believe that by failing early and learning from those experiences, founders can become better prepared for their next ventures. We're passionate about fostering a culture of innovation and resilience within the startup community, and the Hobby Incubator Program 2023 is our way of turning that passion into action.
