Kick is the inclusive business incubator, here to help all entrepreneurs through the difficult path from idea to started startup.  We are here to help all the teams after the weekend entrepreneurship events, after the business plan competitions, after graduation, or any other stage of life when an entrepreneur realizes that some help could help.

Kick is here for the lifestyle entrepreneurs, the social entrepreneurs, and the tech entrepreneurs.

Kick is here for the for-profits, the non-profits, and the hybrid models.

The startup process isn’t that different between low-growth and high-growth businesses, nor between tech-centric and people-centric companies.  All entrepreneurs need to understand their customers, understand their markets, and with that knowledge, find a path to sustainable revenues.

Here’s how Kick works:
