What We do
At NBC, identifying committed entrepreneurs and new ideas is the first step in guiding SME businesses to success.
During the pre-incubation phase, our business advisory consultant will work with you to refine your business idea. You will also be requested to participate in NBC idea development workshops.
NBC also supports existing entrepreneurs, provided they meet a number of requirements. In this stage, main services of NBC include financial and legal advice, administrative and marketing assistance, facilities support and growth development guidance, ranging from branding exercises to in-house workshops on product-specific needs.
Graduated companies from NBC have the opportunity to avail our acceleration services, customized to increase their market growth and strategic development.
In addition to providing training on the basics of running a business for incubated and pre-incubated companies, NBC also conducts regular networking events that enable participating companies to identify opportunities, as well as market their products and services to major corporate companies and private/government entities.
