What is waiting for you in the JIC ENTER programme?

  1. Draw up a business plan

    Complete the online application to the JIC ENTER programme. As long as it is approved by at least 2 JIC experts, you are in the programme!

  2. Put together a plan of action

    At the initial consultation we go through your project thoroughly. Together we set business goals and plan how to achieve them.

  3. Draw in knowledge

    You can attend workshops, read in the JIC library or discuss with other teams in the JIC hallways. Ideally all three together.

  4. Get specific advice

    Have regular meetings with the JIC consultants, who will connect you with selected experts on business, marketing and soft skills.

  5. Acquire continuous evaluation

    Every month we will evaluate whether you are going in the right direction. No blind alleys!

  6. Be in an inspirational environment

    Up to 3 people from your team will be able to work in a fully equipped coworking space in the JIC INMEC building.

  7. Pick up contacts

    A minimum of 2 events are held every month for aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs at the JIC, so there will be no shortage of opportunities.

  8. Be in the picture

    Our newsletter and other communication channels mean that you won't miss any business opportunities.

  9. Mature for investments

    We will help you determine when you are ready. When that time arrives, we will connect you with investors or recommend appropriate grant opportunities.

As long as you fulfil the objectives, which you have set up jointly with the consultant, you can stay in JIC ENTER for up to 6 months. For the services of consultants and mentors, educational workshops, space in the coworking area for up to 3 people and other services, you contribute a symbolic sum of only CZK 1,500 a month.

Frequently asked questions

Who can enrol in JIC ENTER?

Individuals and teams with innovative technological ideas, products or services, and which do not yet have paying customers, are welcome. Do you want to open a bike shop? Then, the programme is not suitable for you. Do you make bikes from ultra-light materials, but do not know how to begin selling? You’re our person!

What if I do not suit JIC ENTER?

You can still visit workshops and seminars from which you can gain important knowledge for building your business. If you have customers, you can participate in the JIC MASTER programme. For those whose projects are in the field of Internet of Things or ICT Security, then we offer the international accelerator JIC STARCUBE. You can also validate your business idea at a JIC Grill event, where you will get valuable feedback.

What is waiting for me in JIC ENTER?

In the initial consultation we find out in which areas your project is strong and which areas need to be moved further ahead. Accordingly, we prepare a plan for the next few weeks and months and we steer you on the way to your first paying customers. You participate in various workshops and seminars and regular consultations with experts. You will fulfil specified tasks, go to regular meetings with your consultant, and assess whether you are meeting the objectives. Throughout this period, up to 3 people from your team can take advantage of the coworking space.

Who will help me with starting a project?

From the JIC consultants and more than 80 external experts, we choose the “stars” in your field who are most able to help you.

How long does JIC ENTER last?

You can remain in the programme as long as you need – up to 6 months. Do not forget, however, that during this time you must fulfil the plan of activities and move your business project forward.

What happens after the end of JIC ENTER?

That is entirely up to you! Maybe you will attract investment or establish a company, and then maybe we will meet again in the follow-up programme JIC MASTER. And if not, we will be happy to see you at other JIC events. .

When and how can I apply to JIC ENTER?

All applicants will meet our internal experts and those will be invited to a Selection Day. Here, each company will present itself to a jury consisting of representatives of the JIC and external experts. The jury will select the companies that will be accepted. Just complete the online application form and we will get back to you with further instructions.

How much does JIC ENTER cost?

For the services of consultants and mentors, educational workshops, space in the coworking area for up to 3 people and other services, you contribute a symbolic sum of 1,500 CZK a month. You are helping us to cover the costs in running the JIC.
