Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Start-up Mission (KSUM) has invited applications for its structured three-month virtual pre-incubation programme from start-ups that have innovative ideas or have developed prototypes.
The programme, titled ‘Fail Fast or Succeed (FFS)’, is meant for evaluating the best business possibilities of ideas of start-ups and avoiding their last-stage failure, a press release said on Friday.
