This programme aids applicants that are seeking assistance in developing their innovative products, processes and/or services within the following areas:
• Renewable Energy
• Energy Efficiency
• Advanced Manufacturing, Automation, and Industry 4.0
• Internet of Things
• Smart City solutions
The industrial incubator will consider applicants who already have a proof-of-concept or early stage prototype.
Applicants are required to make an online submission on the website. Once the applications are screened internally
and align to Propella’s vision and focus areas, then applicants would be required to present their innovations to a panel.
Should the panel endorse the application, the start of a 3-year journey with Propella would commence.
Propella offers both virtual and physical incubation services. Prototyping support facilities such as 3D printing,
3D scanning and small part machining and moulding are available, together with a well-resourced workshop that has all
the basic tools required for manufacturing. There is also a network of skilled technical and business support.
If there are products that demonstrate great growth / market potential, Propella would also be willing to engage in
‘cash for equity’ discussions.
Content covered for Industrial innovators is determined by an in-depth diagnostic conducted on the business and technology as
the venture enters the programme. A journey is charted and agreed on that best utilises the resources made available by
Propella and the objective and times frames of the innovator.
Typically, an advisor and mentor are assigned to the innovator who also receives access to the Propella Content Platform
and bi-weekly workshops offered by Propella.
The following key development stages are covered over a maximum period of 3 years.
• Prototype finalisation testing and trialling
• Go to market preparation
• Growth scenarios, preparation, and scaling of the business
