Unique to The NIIC is our 90-day Affiliate Program. Here, entrepreneurs who aren’t ready for launch, or who haven’t committed to their business idea full-time, can receive one-on-one venture advisory services in a customized and supportive entrepreneurial learning environment. Together, we’ll define a series of goals, and a detailed plan for when, and how, they will be achieved to determine the viability of the idea and the likely launch of your business venture.

The Affiliate Program is available using tele-coaching, or in-person advisory services. Entrepreneurs will have access to online entrepreneurial growth tools, including WKI So What, Who Cares, Why You™, Lean Canvas and The NIIC Navigator® Tool Set to complement the expertise of an assigned entrepreneur-in-residence. Typical duration for program participants is three-to-six months.

Setting your own pace and utilizing proven “business builder” tools, you will have guidance, coaching and support services to move forward confidently with your venture:

Affiliate entrepreneurs also have access to The NIIC’s client appreciation events, educational workshops and the use of our business center and concierge services. Some additional charges may apply.
