Mentorship for Entrepreneurs

Mentorship for and by entrepreneurs lies at the heart of The Birdhouse. Under the motto ‘experience is the best teacher’, each of our mentors was carefully selected. Thanks to their experience, devotion and extensive expertise with start-ups in Belgium, they will intensively lead you to your goal.

Large Pool of Talent & Experience

The mentorship guarantees a pool of entrepreneurs with a diversity of talent and experience. Art, fashion, marketing, technology: no shortage of expertise here.

Sharing Engagement & Enterprise

Each team is assigned 2 to 3 permanent mentors. Without a doubt, they share your enterprise and can't wait to mentor you during the programme. Entrepreneurs unite!


On top of their experience and guidance, our mentors will offer you a little extra. They won't just open up their network to you, but they might just invest in your business as well!
