WE GET YOU TO THE STARTING LINE
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!

TAKE YOUR FUTURE IN YOUR OWN HANDS
We are looking for young, curious, and driven participants of various backgrounds (technical, business, science, engineering, marketing, and design) or relevant hands on vocational experience.
You can apply without a business idea or team.
We believe in inclusion. Therefore we welcome locals as well as people with a migration background. We focus on people who are underemployed or on welfare (uitkering). 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.
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 and coaching.
During the summer we offer you an intensive ride from July 19th to August 25th. An inclusive group of 20 people will have the chance to develop a project / business idea during these 6 weeks. The Summer Session will cost you only EUR 150. Check out our flyer for more info and apply now to have an intake interview with us.
There are two pitch events during the Summer Session. You are most welcome to visit and see what our participants are working on:
- INTERIM PITCH EVENING: 3 AUG – 18:00
- FINAL PITCH EVENING: 24 AUG – 18:00
The next chance to join our full program will be this September. Go ahead and already apply now to become part of our flexible long term program.
Please ask us during the interview about the financial options. You may also use your DUO loan for DELITELABS. Apply and we can find out during the interview if this would work for you.
