The NICHE program is aimed to foster entrepreneurs with the necessary skills to solve a real-world problem by creating a prototype and a business plan to implement it. NICHE is designed to encourage founders in identifying a problem in a nearby or faraway community and providing a tangible solution.
The first part of the challenge consists of making a prototype that can solve the problem you’ve pinpointed, and the second part requires you to generate a business proposal on how you will turn your idea into a company.
