Every other Friday, we organise a mandatory session at our campus. The mornings will be filled with workshops on several entrepreneurial skills and methods, such as fundraising, customer development, pitching and more. We’ll also have several experienced entrepreneurs as guest speakers who will share their experiences and lessons learned.
During the afternoon, there’s room to speak with our coaches to discuss questions, ideas, opportunities and challenges you run into. We do not mandate what you can talk about, it is entirely up to you to decide what you want to discuss with them. Coaching takes place both on an individual basis as well as in groups with your fellow entrepreneurs (peer-to-peer support). In our experience, you often share similar challenges and discussing them together helps to create new perspectives and ideas on how to tackle them.
These full-day sessions are the backbone of the programme and provide you with the necessary knowledge and feedback to move your idea forward. It is therefore important that you attend all of them. If the dates of one of our classes do not work for you, keep an eye out for our next programme; we run four of them every year!
On Thursday evening before the first Friday session we have the kick-off of the programme with all participants. For your information, this is the only evening session and the only session on Thursday in those 10 weeks; it is required you attend the kick-off.
