Creating a Program

Creating a new program will allow you to assign your startups to that program upon acceptance from the application process.

Who Can Add A New Program?

Admin and Admin&Coach are allowed to create and edit programs.


Creating a new program

To create a new program in your incubator, click on Setup from the side menu and click on Programs. From the program page, click the blue Create a New Program button in the upper right corner. The program editing modal will open, and you can fill in the required fields to create your new program.

  • Name and short name of the program. Note: it is not possible to create various programs with the same long or short name. Make sure each program has a different name.
  • Select the type of program: startup or user. Note that users, such as community members, can only be assigned to User Programs, while startups can only be assigned to Startup Programs.
  • Choose the team members (coach, staff, and admin) to be assigned to the program.
  • Add an admin to the program. If you have a sub-admin that you wish to assign as an administrator, you can do so by adding them here.
  • Assign the specific metrics for your program. To learn how to assign metrics, click here.

Editing the program

If you want to edit an existing program, click the edit icon on the right side of the program row, and the program editing modal will open.

  • The same fields in the creation step will be available: name, short name, assign team member, and metrics.
  • You can also edit the acceptance email. Startups receive this email upon being accepted or assigned to this program.
  • Add a new Evaluation Parameter. To learn more about evaluation parameters, see here.

When your program edits are ready, click on the blue Save button. The changes made to the program will be immediate.
