THE CICADA APPROACH:
CREATE, ACCELERATE AND INCUBATE

We partner with visionary technical founders to provide them with business support from ideation all the way through to scale up phase, leveraging the talent and capabilities of our shareholder universities. To put it simply, we support carefully selected deep tech founders to achieve their business goals faster and smarter.

Cicada Innovations is a program-driven Incubator. This means that we create and accelerate deep tech ventures through a number of specialised commercialisation and mentor driven accelerator programs. Our accelerator programs feed into the incubator where further long-term support is provided in the form of subsidised physical space, specialised infrastructure, access to our community of world class innovators, networks of investors and domain experts as well as talent and capabilities sourced from our shareholders Universities.

We know deep tech ventures need time to bring their products and services to market and we are in it for the long run.
