|Target Beneficiaries||Applications are evaluated on the potential impact – will the business idea make a significant impact on the community, women and the environment?|
|Potential for Scale||Eligibility is determined by the applicant's "progress to date", answering the question "has the applicant taken key first steps to move the idea forward?". Also, feasibility – is the business idea feasible from a technical and business perspective?|
|Reporting Requirements||When an entrepreneur is admitted into KCIC, a letter of agreement is signed for an incubation programme for a maximum period of 12 months. In the course of 12 months the progress of the company is tracked through monthly reports and meetings with Business Analysts.|
All applications are reviewed and the response sent within three weeks. In some cases, one-on-one meetings are necessary where additional information is required.
