A Focused Business System
About The Incubator
We help creative entrepreneurs, businesses, professionals, future industry leaders and partnership organisations transform compelling ideas into successful businesses. We offer business mentoring, commercial training and consultancy, including visiting relevant organisations, offering mentorship schemes, building specific business identities with their own value systems, forging partnerships, creating good communication channels, and more. “Mentorship” is key to creating a successful incubator. Developing talent is at the heart of the British academic nurturing system, with Oxford and Cambridge Universities prime examples of successfully using “mentorship” programmes to support talent. At the LDA incubator programme, mentors are internationally respected industry leaders, experts and academics, who look at the industry landscape from a much broader and experienced perspective.
