Has it been months since you came up with that idea? Could it be a great business that nobody is offering yet, or do you think you might know do it better? Have you finally decided to start seriously working on it, but you are not sure how? Guidance is the first challenge many entrepreneurs face when they start working hard on their projects.
The Boostcamp Program has been designed specifically for early-stage startups. Entrepreneurs can join at different stages, depending on his/her needs. Here are the 5 main reasons to jump on board if you have an IT startup idea to develop:
1. The Boostcamp gives your team specific tools and knowledge catered to your project.
Thanks to the Entrepreneurship Essentials-MOOC, you can start by learning the business basics if needed. Our experts will guide you from the very beginning and give you feedback on your project and personalized advice to move forward. They are experienced in working with startups in the IT field and have deep knowledge of the ecosystem. The One Hour Challenge, run in partnership with LeanSquare, will give them enough time to understand and evaluate your project better.
2. It challenges and helps you refine your project, so you can start it in its most optimized version.
The coaches and experts you will meet during the Boostcamp Intensive Week will make you rethink all the important points. Is your idea actually original? Did you choose the right business model? Is it scalable? Will you need external investment?
3. You can learn from other entrepreneurs’ mistakes/successes
If you are selected for the Boostcamp Intensive Week, you will get to share 5 days with founders of other IT startups. They will all have different stories of success or failure behind them. You will not only share coaching sessions and workshops, but also experiences and knowledge!
4. You will expand your network through the program (entrepreneurs and experts)
By having the chance to meet and consult our experts at the One Hour Challenge, as well as participating during the Boostcamp Intensive Week, your contact list will grow considerably. From coaches to experts from different fields, peer entrepreneurs, investors and people related to the startup ecosystem, you will have the opportunity to make valuable contacts.
5. It gives you the opportunity to raise money to have a head start and/or a temporary place to start your business
Money is always a main factor when launching a startup. As we are aware of that, in addition to the coaching, the training, and the networking, every year we manage to offer a special prize for the best two projects: coworking space for the second prize and 3.000 euros for the winner.
