Injaz Startups Project - Incubation Online Support System Guide

  1. 1. Injaz Startups Program<br />Incubation Online Support System<br />Offline-Online Transition Guide<br />1<br />
  2. 2. Strategy:<br />The objectives of the offline-online transition project is:<br />Deliver an online, web-based incubation support system that enables an integral heterogeneous incubation environment (online/offline).<br />Deliver a high-quality system within a limited time frame. <br />Implement the Agile methodology during the software development cycle to enable early utilization of the system’s core functions. <br /> Ensure that the system is valid from both, security and user-friendliness aspects.<br />2<br />
  3. 3. Approach:<br />1<br />Concept<br />&<br />Details<br />Support<br />&<br />Improve<br />2<br />3<br />Test<br /> & <br />Release<br />3<br />
  4. 4. The Users:<br />Injaz staff (as Super Users).<br />Corporates incubators (as Advanced Users). <br />Startups teams (as Normal Users).<br />4<br />
  5. 5. The Process Flow:<br />Apply to the program online<br />Application is subjected to a set of selection criteria<br />Once approved, the application is directed to the local Deloitte office/country where the company operates or intend to operate in<br />Corporate incubation is offered through a match making process, where the incubator chooses the company it wants to incubate based on its own evaluation of the services and support it can offer the incubated company <br /><ul><li>The company is physically incubated for six months and after six months they graduate from the program and have to be market ready and able to self-sustain through profitable operations or second round of Angel investment or Venture Capital Investment.</li></ul>5<br />
  6. 6. The Process Flow (Cont.):<br />Each incubator assigns a principal mentor<br /><ul><li>The mentor ensures adequate support to the incubated company through direct interaction with him/herself and other mentors in the incubator or through mentor networking activities (where the company is matched with business mentors from other companies). </li></ul>Seed funding from Injaz (which controls the funding process) is offered based on a submitted budget (with maximum funding of $ 15,000 USD). <br />The budget is linked to certain milestones and the assigned mentor from the incubator is entrusted with monitoring the expenditures of the incubated company. <br />Expenses are monitored by the accounting entity who sign off on the account in collaboration with the incubated company<br />6<br />
  7. 7. The System’ Process Flow:<br />7<br />
  8. 8. The System’ Main Tasks:<br />Provide 3 user interfaces, each for one of the 3 users types, where each has its own privileges.<br />Provide a platform for applications submission and receiving through the website.<br />Enable applications management to be done online (approval, rejection).<br />Offer the applications exporting/forwarding option to allow sending them to the other related parties (e.g. Deloitte).<br /> Allow a user type-based access mechanism for each user by utilizing different user account groups. <br />Allow files management environment where each user owns his/her own folder and can (Access, Create, Edit, Delete), all depending on the given privileges. <br />Provide a summary status on the user interface showing the important info about the user , (e.g. startups teams could view their incubation time line, funding status, left fund amount, …). <br />8<br />
  9. 9. The System’ Main Elements:<br />By adopting Agile development, the development team could release individual elements of the system on a short releases fashion. This enables the critical elements of the system to be usable and available to the users, while other less critical elements still underdevelopment. <br /><ul><li>Criticality of development: suggests how important is to have a specific element of the system developed and functioning before the others. Number “1” is a notation of the highest level of importance. </li></ul>9<br />
  10. 10. System Development Time Line:<br />2011<br />Days 1 - 21<br />10<br />October (31 Days)<br />November (30 Days)<br />December (31 Days)<br />Days 22 - 43<br />Days 66 - 92<br />Days 44 - 65<br />Online application filling, receiving and viewing platform<br />Element 1<br />Element 1 possible iterations (bugs/improvements)<br />Users account & files management platform <br />Element 2<br />Element 2 possible iterations (bugs/improvements)<br />Applications export/forwarding/sharing capabilities <br />Element 3<br />Element 3 possible iterations (bugs/improvements)<br />Element 4<br />Interface section showing user-related info/status <br />Element 4 possible iterations (bugs/improvements)<br />Final Release<br />
