We have been doing this for thousands of clients in over 108 countries in last couple of decades and it is high time we encourage our own talent in the country. We are already a highly entrepreneurial firm that has resulted in over 100 Companies evolving in Bangalore, this is our effort to institutionalize and make this a successful incubation process."
Hema Malini N., Director & Co-Founder of Champions Group who was part of the Womenpreneur group and Women Empowerment drive - the central theme at GES2017 with the likes of Ivanka Trump as Chief guest expressed "Over half the ratio of entrepreneurs at GES being women, it is a testament to the potential of women. Our main goal through this venture will be towards supporting women entrepreneurs and especially ecommerce & artificial Intelligence focused outfits.. 95% of startups fail mostly within the first 5 years of inception because they are unable to promote themselves globally. This is exactly what our venture, the CI-Hub incubator will address. We will also be supporting incubated entities with VP level Sales staff across US and Europe"
