We understand that your Incubator Programme is attracting applications from skilled individuals and you need to throw your net far and wide to get the best chance of finding the right candidates. Your job is to continuously attract the right applicants for review so that you can make and process decisions quickly and easily. This means collecting accurate information, so that any scoring matrix you use helps to shortlist the best candidates for interview.
HEIapply software is empowering Incubators and Business Hubs worldwide to do exactly this. We are helping Incubator Programmes perform better at streamlining application and selection processes. Our intuitive web-based system is designed to reflect your existing processes entirely online, enabling you to refine and improve them to provide the ultimate applicant journey.

The Challenge

We understand that applicants applying for Incubator Programmes often come from varied professional backgrounds. A system that seamlessly processes multiple entry requirements, accurate scoring whilst collecting detailed information from applicants is key to offering a service that keeps you ahead in this highly competitive market.

Additionally, applications come in from all over the world, at the same time. To respond to this you need to keep applicants engaged and informed at every stage of the process. Engaging with applicants from other countries means having separate application forms in each language.

Our solution for your recruitment programme

We recognise the need for Incubators and Business Hubs to operate efficiently, effectively and competitively, recruit from all over the globe, and place the right applicant in the right role. We know that speed and cost efficiency are hugely important.

That’s why we work with you to ensure that we have all the vital ingredients to create your perfect paperless application management and selection solution at a budget that works for you.

Common Questions asked by Incubators and Business Hubs


"We had a paper-based application process with internal and external team members. It was proving time consuming and difficult. Email trails were hard to follow and find and we were constantly fielding applicant follow up calls. HEIapply has allowed us to have a complete online application process, massively improving the applicant journey. If telling someone else about HEIapply, I would say: Just make the switch, you’ll not regret it!”
