What our startups say
- Christopher DrakeElastice - Germinate
"ilab's germinate program helped me go from just an idea to having an MVP. It wasn't about the funding, it was about the support and they helped me identify my own personal goals as well as goals for the business. They gave me opportunities that would have never been made available to me, and it has given me the motivation and determination to see what could be."
- Callum PottsAudera - Germinate
"This is not your garden variety Bootcamp weekend. The mentors and entrepreneurs-in-residence are there to give you bluntly practical information, and their advice embodies the 'lean' mantra. We improved orders of magnitude each day - just when you think you're getting comfortable in your approach, confronting and challenging new advice comes along and you're improving by another order of magnitude."
- Petrina BuckleyCredosity - Germinate
"The advice, guidance and support on offer from the ilab mentors and cohort has been absolutely invaluable in helping us 'build to last'."
- Eban EscottCrowdSites - Incubate
"The ilab incubate program gives us the freedom to explore and create innovative solutions. We would not have survived without it."
