We support people with a migration background and a desire to build their own business
Everyone who is curious and motivated can participate in our program. You can sign up whether you already have a business idea or not.
However, we expect you to speak and understand either English or Dutch. Also that you will complete your integration course or that you already completed it.

More importantly, we expect you  to build your own business as part of your personal dream because you have the drive to transform your passion into a business opportunity. That's why you are willing to spend time and effort, while being  a team player by sharing your knowledge and experience with others.

So, if you think that you have an entrepreneurial spirit, really energetic, and are dreaming of starting your own business in the Netherlands. Then, this is for you! Join us!

THE PROGRAM

A start up incubation program
During 5 weeks, you will receive training on design thinking and LEAN start up techniques. We offer you several workshops, work together to develop and test a (your) prototype and support you to pitch your business idea.

The first week is about creating teams and how to start a business in the Netherlands. During the second week, we focus on creating an idea. The third week is all about developing the business model. Building a prototype is on the menu in week four. And finally, in the fifth week, we will teach you how to pitch your business idea.

The program is for free for the selected participants. Experience as an entrepreneur is not necessary. Personal development is just as important as business development.

To participate you must be available 3 full days per week during the 5 week program, starting in October 9, 2017.
