Prototype it

validate your business idea


What is it?

During the 4 months program, we'll teach you how to turn your idea into a company and navigate the world of prototyping by providing the necessary funds, knowledge and support. By the end you'll have a working prototype ready for testing, so all you need right now is a clear vision

and dedication!

Who can apply?

Teams of 2-4 people 
At least one team member must be a student 


What to expect?

4 months filled with various workshops and learning sessions, as well as live meetups and networking to sharpen your business skills (mostly during evenings). The rest of the time you'll manage/be the boss of yourself: planning individual meetings with mentors and reporting the progress. In conclusion, you'll be able to show off your prototype and pitching skills among the other teams and the jury. Any guidance you might need, our team will be there to help and make sure you're getting exactly what you came for.

Meet the mentors


Why you should apply?

"The program and its mentors have genuinely taught us what it means to develop an idea and create a company out of it. I would say the most fascinating revelations were how you must create multiple plans, pivot when difficulty arises and how the timeline for the plans shifts before your eyes."

- Emīls Egle, CEO at Saubram

"Although ESI provides many lectures and workshops, it's super important to mention that the team members behind this program are like a family! This whole experience would not be the same without the Program Director and Manager. They are like two moms who always check in with you, support you and join you in your adventures. Trust us - this is not your average incubator!"

- Sāra Zdanovska, 
CEO at YourLibet

"The ESI programme has allowed us to develop the idea not only on a theoretical business level but also provided financial support for developing product samples and even for market testing. We definitely recommend it to everyone who has the self-motivation to work every day to make an idea into reality"

- Elvija Vanaga,

CEO at Fat Cat Leaves

"ESI incubator provided an opportunity to meet world-class mentors and participate in interactive workshops allowing us to future develop our solution."

- Valters Slava,

CEO at Greencheck
