Boostcamp#9 Started!

The 9th edition of the Boostcamp, the Microsoft Innovation Center Brussels program for early-stage businesses Kicks-Offed on the 21st of January. The next edition of the Boostcamp will start in September 2016. If you want to know more about the next edition, contact us at: bcb1@mic-brussels.be.

The program consists of a series of hands-on, practical workshops in key areas of knowledge for starting entrepreneurs (Business Model, Sales, Marketing, Finance, practical aspects) and includes sparring sessions with experts from a wide variety of backgrounds. Eight startups will have the chance to continue the program after the semifinal and be a step closer to the final.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN BOOSTCAMP?

Entrepreneurship is a profession in its own right, and to be successful you need to learn a lot of very fundamental things you’re likely not even aware of today.  Boostcamp will give you a crash course in these fundamentals of entrepreneurship.

This intensive program will guide you step by step and help you make quick progress on your project – if your project hasn’t progressed in a while, we’ll definitely help you move forward.

Most importantly, we focus on practice, not on theory – so you will try all of the things we’ll be talking about, and you will have fantastic opportunities to discuss your project with experts, experienced entrepreneurs and potential investors and get personalized, in-depth feedback from them.

WHO CAN JOIN BOOSTCAMP?

Any technology startup in the Brussels region (or intending to establish a business in the Brussels region) can qualify for Boostcamp; only a limited number of startups will be accepted though.  

The program is designed for entrepreneurs who have just built the prototype of their product, or are still thinking how to start the business.  We can also help young companies that have just been launched but are still struggling to find a working business model and build first revenues.
