Cavalli Foundation was established as an incubator with the aim of translating the ideas of young visionaries into a format which can enter an ‘accelerator’. In other words, to enable them to find investors. Our goal is to transform these ideas into a prospering business. The mentors in our ‘idea incubator’ work on a voluntary base.

Our Approach

Start-up incubators liaise with companies or single entrepreneurs who are at early stages of development and do not operate on a set schedule.
If an ‘accelerator’ is comparable to a greenhouse which offers the optimal conditions for seedlings to grow, an ‘incubator’ is like a catalyst that directs high quality seeds to the best soil for sprouting and growth.
