Have you ever had an idea that could have a huge impact on the world, but you felt you didn't have the skills to make it happen? Are you an academic researcher who wants to make sure your research gets beyond the lab, to become a commercial success? Perhaps you're an employee striving to be an innovative leader, and want to know what it takes to make new ideas into viable business models.
The Gemini Incubator is a global community of productive problem-solvers - from aspiring entrepreneurs, to academic researchers, to policy makers, to engineers who want to contribute to impactful projects alongside inspirational teams. Membership gives you lifelong access to our community and it's resources, and it begins with a 6-month induction program designed to give you the tools, understanding and contacts to turn a light-bulb moment into an internationally successful idea.
Gemini is a world-class program conducted both online and offline, where you will learn about the opportunities available in the space and downstream industries. Join discussions with international experts on key topics around creative problem solving and their personal journeys, receive one-on-one mentorship, and surround yourself encouragement to get 'out of the office' to talk to real people to learn about their problems as you strategically develop perpetually sustainable solution - whether through a for profit or social business model, or even drafting some new and better policy.
We're interested in helping people and groups commercialise innovative solutions and technology that can positively impact billions of lives. Space is no longer exclusively about satellites and rockets, and everything we do on Earth, will need to be done in space. We are interested in unlocking solutions using existing and emerging technologies, such as digital biology, blockchain, virtual reality, advanced manufacturing and artificial intelligence.
Gemini is designed to be an early stage program - for those who have never ran an organisation with significant revenue - with a strong focus on the individual's personal development rather than accelerating a specific startup business. We acknowledge and differentiate our incubator from others in that we accept the importance in developing people who aren't necessarily looking to become entrepreneurs. As such, we take no equity - just a small fee to cover costs and for you to join a lifelong community of entrepreneurs, corporations, governments, investors, and academic institutions, all collaborating in pursuit of an abundant future for all.
