Boostcamp Program – Kick-off on the 19th September!

Our Boostcamp program takes place twice a year and consists of a series of hands-on practical workshops in key areas of knowledge for starting entrepreneurs 

You’re interested in the Program and want to attend the next edition? It’s your lucky day: the Boostcamp Kick-off will take place on the 19th September. The objective of the Kick-Off is to provide you with a condensed version of the Boostcamp, in order to help you define if our program is suitable for your IT project. No doubt it is! Not only will you meet the lead coach, Ben Piquard, but also learn about the main topics that are going to be tackled during the program as well as our methodology. It’s free, so don’t hesitate to join us!

Why should I join the Boostcamp?

Entrepreneurship is a profession in its own right. To be successful, you need to learn a lot of very fundamental things you might not even be 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 it hasn’t progressed in a while, we’ll definitely help you move forward.

Most importantly, we focus on practice more than on theory. You will then try all of the things we’ll be talking about and you’ll have fantastic opportunities to meet and discuss your project with inspiring people such as experts, experienced entrepreneurs and potential investors. You’ll get priceless, personalized, in-depth feedback from them as well as the opportunity to enter the Brussels’ startups ecosystem.

By the way, thanks to our partnership with Innoviris, we offer the Boostcamp’s winning project a 3.000€ check to allow further investments and developmen

Who can join the Boostcamp Program?

Provided that its participants are committed to the Program and willing to be boosted, any technology startup in the Brussels region (or intending to establish a business in the Brussels region) can qualify for the Boostcamp.

The program is designed for entrepreneurs who have just built the prototype of their product or are still wondering how to start their business. We can also help young companies that have just been launched but are still struggling to find a working business model and generate their first revenues.

Agenda – Boostcamp 12

Here is the schedule that is established for this edition. Keep in mind that some changes may occur. You can then have a more precise idea of what to expect from this Program. During the Semifinal, the 8 most promising projects are selected. They are divided into 2 groups (A & B), so that they get more attention and better individual feedback during dedicated 90 minute sessions.
