Our incubation process was conceptualized with you in mind. From day 1 you will get everything you need to make your culinary dreams come true- one step at a time.
1. Application & Evaluation
As soon as you attend an orientation session you will learn all you need to know about our incubation process as well as the specifics and the overall tasks involved in operating a food brand. If all goes well, you will start with your formal application process, which will be followed by an interview to assess viability and validate your entrepreneurial spirit, community spirit and product idea.
The next step is a thorough orientation within the kitchen workspace, where we will be highlighting the practical side of things together. In this stage, we will also help you conceptualize the core of your business and finalize product development, accounting, operations and marketing. If this stage is completed successfully, participants will move on to Incubation.
4. Alumni Brands and Graduation
When you complete all key performance objectives within incubation, you will be ready to move your business out of Kitchen Nation, while remaining part of our vibrant alumni community. Some members may choose to continue renting the commercial space and other resources.
