Tailor-made supervision and funding up to €10,000
Startup Fast Track offers fifteen participants an intense and tailor-made supervision route. The entrepreneur (or the entrepreneurial team) receives a tailor-made development route in which both the company and the entrepreneur play a central part. This route consists of training sessions, networking, coaching and an inspirational environment with useful facilities. In response to an assessment he has taken, the entrepreneur works on the competences that are necessary in order to allow a company to grow, so the company gradually develops too. In addition to the unique content-related programme, the route also includes media attention and the possibility of funding. This funding may increase to €10,000. Positive development involves providing access to other major funding opportunities and/or to important customers and suppliers.
