Boostcamp 2016 headerThe kick-Off is a one-day great overview of the program.

If you want to know more about the next edition, contact us at: bcb1@mic-brussels.be.

The program that takes place twice a year, consists of a series of hands-on, practical workshops in key areas of knowledge for starting entrepreneurs (Business Model, Sales, Marketing, Finance, practical aspects) and includes sparring sessions with experts from diverse backgrounds. Eight startups get the chance to continue the program after the semifinal and be a step closer to the final.

Why should I join Boostcamp?

Entrepreneurship is a profession in its own right, and to be successful you need to learn a lot of very fundamental things you’re likely not even aware of today.  This intensive program will give you a crash course in these fundamentals of entrepreneurship.

It will guide you step by step and help you make quick progress on your project – if your project hasn’t progressed in a while, we’ll definitely help you move forward.

Most importantly, we focus on practice, not on theory – so you will try all of the things we’ll be talking about, and you will have fantastic opportunities to discuss your project with experts, experienced entrepreneurs and potential investors and get personalized, in-depth feedback from them.

Who can join Boostcamp?

Any technology startup in the Brussels region (or intending to establish a business in the Brussels region) can qualify for Boostcamp. The program is designed for entrepreneurs who have just built the prototype of their product, or are still thinking how to start the business.  We can also help young companies that have just been launched but are still struggling to find a working business model and build first revenues.
