When hearing the word “incubator”, many people’s thoughts will go directly to small feathery flappers and hatching eggs. Although the core mechanics are similar, we will be talking about a different kind of incubator in this blog. This article will focus on the business model of an incubator and its network.

I joined nevaal two months ago as a Marketing intern. I chose this startup to pursue my summer internship as I wanted to get a glimpse of how a company works in its starting phases. And till this day it has been a great experience. My day starts with a daily standup meeting where we update our team members about the goals we have achieved since the last standup meeting and discuss the things we are working on and get inputs to make it better.
