Develop necessary entrepreneurial skills

Sales, marketing, finance, administrative work: an entrepreneur needs to know it all. We can help you develop the required skills. Internal start-up & scale-up workshops will turn you into a true entrepreneur!

Personal coaching for sustainable growth

Brand new start-up or scale-up in full bloom? Either way, an entrepreneur is faced with both personal and professional challenges. From now on, you can take them on without worry thanks to help and support from your very own personal business coach. The result? Sustainable growth!

Count on coaching by experienced entrepreneurs

Experience is the best teacher. That's why, in our accelerator , your business will be assigned a set team of 2 to 3 mentors. For 6 months, they will work closely with you to help you reach your ambitious goals. Both as counsellors and as confidants. Perhaps even as investors.

Gain access to a huge network

The network always wins. That's right: while on the accelerator programme, you will gain access to a large network of mentors, partners and investors. Feel free to establish new contacts during our weekly events to quickly develop your own network!
