STARTUP SCHOOL


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 100% in English.

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.

Every day there is a 2 – 3 hour lecture of our curated curriculum. The experienced lecturers will teach you the methodologies and tools you need along your startup journey.

Additionally there are some more events or 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. 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 available co-working space.

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

Once you are finished with the program you either enjoyed the journey and would like to continue with your business. Or, if you decide that startup entrepreneurship is not the right thing for you, you at least grew your professional business network in the Netherlands and learned how 21st century business works.

In any case you will have learned how to get stuff done and take own initiative!


PARTICIPANTS


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 to jointly work on their future, together with our corporate trainees. 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 you have the dream to start your business in The Netherlands?

Go ahead, take initiative and apply.

THE PROGRAM


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.

MAIN GOAL: YOU AND YOUR BIZZ

We start with reflecting on what is important to you. You will find a team and define your own challenge topic. Once you convince us that your team and topic is sound, you can apply for the ideation and prototyping phases, where you will get an expert mentor to support you. In the end you will be ready to pitch your tested business idea and apply to the next phase where we will also help you with incorporation and how to get access to finance.

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES TO MANAGE YOUR TIME

DELITELABS is open for you every day and every day you can follow one of our business lectures. As we work with a large lecture crowd, these 2 to 3h lectures may take place at any time of the day.

You can choose which lectures to follow and how long to stay at DELITELABS. We have learned that different people and teams work at different speeds, so you are welcome to choose your own! Some will manage to create their business already after a few months, other may take longer, because, for example, you follow other courses or a part time job in parallel.

BE PART OF OUR ENTREPRENEUR COMMUNITY

The only condition to be part of the DELITELABS community and get full access to the innovative learning program and constant mentorship while enjoying in our co-working space is that you pay your monthly subscription fee.

We allow you to experience the first month of DELITELABS for free. After the first month you would have to join one of our 2 day intensive boot camps for EUR 180 and then stay subscribed for EUR 100 per month. You can cancel any month.

We aim to launch the all new DELITELABS 2.0 in spring 2017. Until then you can get to know us and follow our series of evening lectures by applying below.


CORPORATE TRAININGS


Would you like to boost the entrepreneurial spirit of your staff while supporting a social enterprise?

In order to bring top-tier startup education to talented vulnerable target groups in the Netherlands, like unemployed youth or refugees, we have blended the relevant training content from leading consulting firms, as well as the input from boutique players and hands on startup experience.

We have processed all this knowledge and condensed it to an effective form that is easily accessible and emotionally relatable.

If you want to allow your people to benefit from such an intensive entrepreneurial experience, please contact us to explore how we could work together.
