IdeaGist Global Incubation Program

IdeaGist is the world’s largest virtual incubator for people with ideas. It is in use by 28,000+ users from 300+ communities worldwide. If you have an idea that can make a difference, solve a problem, or help people improve their lives and the lives of others, IdeaGist can help. It doesn’t matter if your idea provides social benefits or commercial gains, you can use our incubator to launch it.


IdeaGist Global Incubation Program

IdeaGist Global Incubation Program is designed to help a large number of people with innovative ideas in launching their startups. We are currently accepting applications from entrepreneurs with early-stage ideas. If you already have a product developed, this program may not help you much.

IdeaGist is different from regular incubators and accelerators in many different ways:

  • IdeaGist Global Incubation Program does not take any equity in your idea.
  • We don’t expect you to leave your job to be part of our program
  • You can live where you are, we don’t ask you to relocate to our office in Minneapolis, USA
  • Our focus is more on action instead of building business plans at such an early stage
  • We accept ideas at the earliest stage when no one else is willing to bet on you
  • Dropping an idea for valid reasons or pivoting it is considered success on IdeaGist platform

Selection Process

Our selection process is simple. We give you the tasks and see your work. There is no one judging your idea and there no one to babysit you. You can change your mind, learn, pivot, all what you like, ultimately, your results will speak for themselves.

We will look at the quality of your profile, adherence to the program rules, discipline to follow the timeline, respect to your mentors, willingness to provide updates, speed of your responses, and many other indicators that will tell us that you are serious. We would like to see you making decisions independently and taking control of your own work, propelled by your own desire to succeed.
