How Does it Work
Take 3 min to fill in the idea registration form to apply for the program. We will check it for clarity and fit with the purpose of the program and give you feedback in up to 48h (working week).
The first stage of the program is the Bootcamp (more details below), where you will have the chance to develop your idea further and make a pitch deck on: Impact, Business and Team. You will have the chance to present your idea to an expert jury who will judge the fit to the program and suggest a certain support package for your venture.
It is a qualification not a selection process!
The Bootcamp will be followed by a 4 month acceleration program with 2 options of intensity:
- 3 Modules: Impact / Business and Finance
- Funding Opportunities Session
- Coaching Clinics
- 6 month Impact Hub Connect membership
- + 2 extra Modules: Prototyping / Go-to-Market (TBD)
- + expert diagnostic
- + individual coaching
- + learning journey
Participation in the Bootcamp is mandatory for participation in the support program.
All ideas have to be submitted by October 6th, 2023 18:00 CEST. The registrations will be reviewed for quality and fit to the program on a continuous basis. Every registration will receive feedback in up to 48h (Monday-Friday).
Due to space constraints we can accept a maximum of 40 participants during this round. When we reach 40 qualified registrations, you will be added to the waiting list. So, if you have an idea or already a business you want to take forward, be quick and register!
