Incubation Centers and Innovation Spaces

Startups and entrepreneurs require a network of support and services to create a company. NI partners with local high-tech incubation centers, accelerators, and innovation spaces in emerging markets to provide access to industry-grade development tools for their tenants. With the graphical system design platform, small teams of domain experts can quickly move from concept design to a functional prototype and beyond to include validation, testing, and, in many cases, final deployment. The development tools along with technical training and mentoring plays a transformative role in getting to the next phase of funding.

NI works with select centers to develop partnerships that can sustainably support the creation of new high-value-add, technology-based companies for the locale. We are currently working with partners in Ethiopia, Vietnam, India, Lebanon, Malaysia and Mexico and can contact the local NI office to further discuss plans and initiatives.
