Innovations Axis Model

Innovations Axis is Sierra Leone’s first fully functioning incubator, with programs (Incubation and Acceleration) framed on 5 Containers/Stages:

  1. Formation;
  2. Validation;
  3. Scaling;
  4. Growth; and
  5. Exit

Innovation Axis use a combination of tools and methodologies to move entrepreneurs from Ideation to Growth, using the Startup Commons Framework (shown below).

In the Formation container we use Design-driven entrepreneurship principles (Business Model Canvas, Customer Discovery) to develop an idea to a concept and MVP, while the Validation container offers Lean Start-up tools with a focus on validating a Minimum Viable Product through iterating and/or pivoting.
