On April 11, 2023, our students had an amazing day exploring in5 Media’s process of creating business ideas, from incubation to building the business itself. Ms. Reem Al Abbas, Senior Community Manager of in5 Media, welcomed the Westford students, faculty, and staff and began the discussion on how in5 Media helps business startups set their business ideas, from ideation to marketing strategies, and building their business models, which encapsulates the incubation process in the hub.
The students were captivated by in5 Media’s novel approach to fostering business concepts. Ms. Reem described how they provide guidance to start-ups networking possibilities, and access to capital. She also highlighted success stories of firms that began at the hub and went on to become profitable ventures.
The students were given a tour of the facility and observed how the incubation process works firsthand. They were amazed by the cutting-edge technology and facilities accessible to entrepreneurs at in5 Media. During the question-and-answer session, students posed insightful questions regarding entrepreneurship and company growth. Inevitably, it was an eye-opening experience for everyone involved, with students feeling inspired and encouraged to pursue their entrepreneurial endeavours in the future.
The trip concluded with a testimonial interview with one of in5 Media’s startup firms, in which they shared their success story with the students. The industrial tour had a considerable influence on learners since it introduced them to the potential of developing unique company concepts in the media and communications fields.
