What are the costs?
The program is completely FREE. We want everyone to be able to build a startup with our resources and network.
Can I participate if I'm not in the Netherlands?
Yes, you are more than welcome. You must be aware of the time-zones and that after the program it will be harder for you to apply for an incubator program because, most of them require you to attend to offline workshops.
Can I attend the recording of the lectures?
Unfortunately, that is not possible anymore. However, our partners will organize offline meetups before and during the program. Check our social accounts for updates.
We are a group of 4, how many of us need to apply?
You apply per startup, so you don't have to apply separately. All members of your team are more than welcome to join the progress sessions and feedback rounds.
What happens at the end of the program?
First of all, once you succesfully complete the program you will receive a certificate. More importantly, we will advice you to apply to our partners validation programs.
