The youth of Pakistan has the potential to make our country a better place if given the right mentorship and direction. At KNCT it’s our mission to invest our time and resources into ideas that can make a difference. KNCT Incubation Program is an initiative to help ideas grow and flourish with right mentorship from industrial and professional experts as mentorship is the core value of our mission.
KNCT incubation program is designed over three stages namely, Stand-Up, Start-Up and Scale-Up Hyperdrives and each run over a span of 6 months. Each Hyperdrive is designed on a professional curriculum of 16 weeks to provide all the required knowledge, skills, tool and techniques. Once they have knowledge in hand another 8 weeks of time is given to implement and mold your idea on the frame works provided to you.
