TEL INCUBATE provides bespoke and custom created incubation for socially proactive and generative start-ups.   


Through its bespoke approach for providing fully integrated incubation support, TEL INCUBATE applies know-how and network resource (human, technical, and financial) to provide start-ups with everything from value proposition development and refinement to financial resourcing, to a vibrant and curated network from Switzerland, Singapore, and the EU. 


In its interdisciplinary collaboration with and across a community of academics and researchers, curators and creatives, as well as entrepreneurs and humanitarians, TEL INCUBATE provides full-stack incubation for developing start-ups that create products, services, or processes that are reliable by science, enjoyable by creativity, and sustainable through entrepreneurship. 





Working according to the TEL INCUBATE growth mindset, TEL INCUBATE also offers a platform for entrepreneurs to share their expertise and knowledge of building and scaling businesses with academics and researchers. 


Through fair value-exchange, we match entrepreneurs with academics/researchers to create science-based/informed, sustainably scalable start-ups and businesses in exchange for a percentage of revenue or equity. 

  • I’m interested in your start-up incubation, how do I apply?
    You can get in touch with us through our contact page. We’ll get back to you within three working days to follow-up on your queries and/or make an appointment for an online meeting. The TEL INCUBATE program is selective. After having discussed your start-up idea and performed our initial due diligence, we will inform you as to whether your start-up is a good fit for the TEL INCUBATE program. If you receive a positive answer, we will work closely with you and your team to create a custom-made plan for the incubation of your start-up.
  • I’m an entrepreneur, how do I collaborate with an academic/researcher to help create a start-up?
    If you’re interested in lending your expertise in exchange for a revenue percentage/equity, get in touch with us through our contact page or by clicking the provide expertise button on this page. Let us know what your background and current position is, and we will match you with an academic or researcher that would benefit from your knowledge. Once you’ve been matched, we will work closely together with you and your collaborators to create a custom incubation plan.
