Incubator & Startup Funding

Funding to refine & test your business ideas

We realize that starting a business is hard.

But finding funds to start your business is even harder.

And this is where we want to help.

That's why we have the CBA INCUBATOR PROGRAM

Click any link below or scroll down to learn all about it.

What this program is

This program is specifically for new startups seeking to gain a foothold in the market with their business plans and ideas.

Funding is provided as a business loan of Ks 100,000 - 200,000.  If you have an existing business or need more funding that this, then click the button to check our ACCELERATOR page

The money provided in the INCUBATOR program is a LOAN to be paid back after an initial interest-free period, unless we both agree that CBA should make further investment, at which time we may opt to convert the loan balance to a minority shareholding in your business.

Increase your chance of success

To help improve your chance of success for CBA funding, do the following:

  • be clear and concise - make sure your application speaks clearly about your business, so that even if the reader knows nothing about your plans, they will still be able to understand

  • be specific about the money - make sure that you have a clear plan on what the CBA funding would be used for, and be ready to support your request with facts.

What happens next

Once you apply, you get an auto-generated confirmation.

Our review team meets biweekly to review applications, and depending on application activity, you should normally expect to hear back within 2-3 weeks. During exceptionally busy times, this may extend to 4-5 weeks.

Following our review, you will hear whether or not your application was successful and, if it was, then you can expect some questions plus a request for the following additional information:

1.) a 12-month income forecast 

we will require a 12-month projection of sales income and expenses to help us determine business & loan viability. If you want to get an early start on this, then click this link to get a copy of our EXCEL financial forecast worksheet.

2.) a 1-page Business Canvas

our specially-designed 1-page Business Canvas gives us an overview of your business plans to help in our evaluation.  If you want to get an early start on this, then click this link to get a copy of our Business Canvas.  Be sure to also download a copy of the instructions via this link.

 

When all the questions are answered for both of us, then we will send you a loan agreement for signature, followed by remittance of funds to your company bank account.
