STARTUP SCHOOL


INCLUSIVE ENTREPRENEUR COMMUNITY


DELITELABS offers an intensive program where you experience entrepreneurship in a safe environment and discover whether creating your own business is a viable option for you. It is in English but we can also talk Dutch.

We believe you can read books by yourself. DELITELABS is all about doing. We make top notch business methodologies accessible to you. You will be surprised how the facilitated application of design thinking and the lean startup will activate your entrepreneurial spirit.

There are regular 2 – 3 hour “mini MBA” lesson. The experienced lecturers will teach you the methodologies and tools you need along your startup journey.

Additionally there are more events and workshops during the week to help you to get on your way. During the rest of the time you will have to organize yourself to apply the things that you have learned – with the help of the DELITELABS community.

We believe that managing your own time is the first thing you need to learn if you want to run your own business! You choose when you want to attend lectures and when you want to make use of our co-working space.

After you have found a business idea and a team, an experienced mentor will help you to incubate your business concept. We help you all the way: until incorporation and how to get access to (pre-seed) finance.

Once you decide to leave the program, you either enjoyed the journey and would like to continue with your business. Or, if we find out that startup entrepreneurship is not the right thing for you, you at least will have grown your professional business network in the Netherlands and have learned how 21st century business works. This will help you with finding a job.

In any case you will have had fun, learned how to take own initiative and have found a new family of likeminded people!

Together with our corporate trainees you will jointly work on your future. You will be amazed how much you will learn from each other in such a mixed group.

So, are you intrinsically entrepreneurial, energized, fluent in English, and do you dream of starting your business in The Netherlands?

Go ahead, take initiative and apply.

 

THE PROGRAMS


AN EXPERIENCE TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE

We have prepared an intensive ride for you based on design thinking and the lean startup. However we believe that self-development and personal growth are most important for aspiring entrepreneurs. After all, it is you who has to carry your future enterprise on your own shoulders. Therefore we also added a pinch of mindfulness, leadership development and coaching.
