Members Incubators who have leveraged our training to scale impact incubation
Villgro USA's Incubating Incubators program is a wealth of knowledge and information on how to run a successful incubator. The resources that are available make it easy to adapt them into our programs and ensure we develop programs that deliver impact. The facilitators have also been great as they share their experiences in running their incubation programs. This has allowed us to fill in the gaps as we design our own programs.
