Questions you may ask yourself

Our incubator program aims at driven, growth-minded professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs who are serious about getting results, bringing their vision to life and who understand the value of a professional support network in establishing a new venture.

It is not necessary to have a concrete business idea or plan in mind to join the program. We believe in people, not ideas. 

During the intake meeting we’ll listen to you to make sure our program is going to be the best environment for you to grow as entrepreneur.

  • Have explored your entrepreneurial ideas and have decided to stay put in your job or freelance mission.
  • Have considered resigning from your job/ freelance mission to work full-time on your consultancy business /
    startup / side project.
  • Have experimented with an idea, building traction before deciding to pursue it full-time.
  • Have decided you will start looking for a co-founder with an idea, business plan, start-up or SME.
  • Have successfully launched your early-stage business and be focusing on growing it.

We interview every participant to make sure that the retreat expectations are aligned with your personal, business and growth goals. Our retreats are purposefully small, with 10-15 participants max, so we want to make sure everyone at the retreat is ready to learn, grow, have fun and launch.

Screening call​: Retained candidates will be invited to a screening video call to get to know each other better. During this stage, we will learn more about your entrepreneurship ambitions, drives & values and answer your questions.

Kick off: Your journey begins – welcome to the Rubicon family  !

A community can only thrive through its members. The people are the experience. By carefully curating & selecting our entrepreneur members we’ll enable that you’ll have the best ratio of fantastic entrepreneurial conversations to shitty conversations you’ll ever encounter.

Everyone you will meet is a doer, has passion for entrepreneurship, knows their shit, and most importantly… is a kind, sharing human.

Refunds are not available, as we use ticket sales to book the venue and prepare for the event. However, you are able to transfer your ticket to another person or get credit towards a future event. If you desire to transfer your ticket to someone else, we must be able to interview that person before the event to ensure a good fit.
