STARTUP ACCELERATOR AND INCUBATOR
The Qyon Center is a hub for fostering entrepreneurship. Qyon Engine acts as a startup accelerator and incubator, that is, Qyon Engine will foster startups that are already operational and in the process of validation, as well as helping entrepreneurs in early stages in the technology area.
Qyon Engine will select people, projects or startups that will receive a Qyon Engine quality seal, after the end of the incubation or acceleration period, which will normally be up to three years.
During this period, the company will be able to install itself in the Qyon Center and have marketing, accounting, financial, legal and R&D advice, in addition to participating in periodic meetings with the Qyon Engine Mentoring Committee, which includes the participation of its directors and business partners.
The selection process for startups, projects and entrepreneurs will follow the regulations published periodically by Qyon Engine, in order to select people and projects that fit the ideal profile that we can effectively help through our tools.
