Acceleration Program will take place in Brussels & Charleroi, Belgium. It is directed to startups from around the world who are looking to target the European market.
The program contains a series of phases that will lead startups to their A funding round.
Product Development Phase:
The first weeks focuses on the product development. Each startup will be introduced to a customer to investigate, develop and test their value propositions/ideas. At the same time, the startups will have access to several services from suppliers to make their idea technologically possible.
A series of workshops on customer investigation, technological choices, prototyping, etc. will be proposed.
Customer Acquisition Phase:
The next weeks focus on acquiring customers. During this phase, the startups will have a series of workshops about customers acquisition techniques, how to prepare a tradeshow, how to pitch, marketing, etc. and as well about legal aspects like shareholder agreement, intellectual property, sales conditions and use terms, etc
The next weeks, the startups will work on the Funding. They will work on their investment proposal. They will receive a series of workshops that will help them to define a clear funding strategy, a proper pitch to investors, the value of their startups, etc. During these weeks, the startups will pitch at least twice in front of investors.
In parallel to the Funding Phase, the focus will be on the international market with a presence at an international show for our startups. Again, the idea will be to get customer leads.
