At the start of the Essentials track, two entrepreneurs share their experiences with you. Next, you learn interesting brainstorming techniques to come up with innovative ideas and look at their feasibility with a critical eye. Will anyone be interested in your business? And can you actually make money with it? We’ll finish the sessions by looking at different business models and how to choose the right fit. At the end of the track, you have a better view on how to come up with and strengthen an idea in order to increase the potential success of your business!
Over the course of 5 sessions, you’ll continue to grow your business idea during the Incubator Track. We’ll start with the do’s and don’ts of pitching so that you’re ready to present your business to different stakeholders. Next we’ll dive into the financial plan and financing methods to help you launch your future business. You’ll also have a chance to talk to experts and ask them all your questions about topics such as sustainability, marketing, grants, accounting and types of ventures. Still in need of extra information? We provide additional digital resources about topics such as intellectual property, GDPR, stakeholder agreements and legal obligations. This way, you can personalize the track with topics that are specifically relevant to your business. Between sessions, the KICK Coach is available to support you during your entrepreneurial adventure. At the end of the program, you’ll get to put the icing on the cake with a strong pitch to show how your idea has grown!
Only the most motivated teams are admitted. Specifically for the postgraduate students, we’ll have intakes at the start of the academic year. This way we can guarantee a qualitative coaching.
