FAQ

All our services are in English. However, we do have special programs also in Dutch. So, if you find out that entrepreneurship is nothing for you after following one of our programs, you at least will have had several weeks of business English training.

This is actually the wrong question. Let’s try to look at the question from this point of view: If you want to start your own business, be prepared to work 60h per week on it. Some of these hours you also spend at DELITELABS. Your commitment, discipline and willingness to work hard is very important.

If you are a statushouder we can agree with your klantmanager upfront how much time you will spend with DELITELABS, but only if you want us to do so.

For the actual timing, please check the program page.

The full cost for the 3 months program is 1485 EUR. However, we do have a number of scholarships available, so that you only have to pay 250 EUR. Please ask us during the interview about the financial options. As a newcomer, you may also use your DUO loan for DELITELABS. Apply and we can find out during the interview if this would work for you.

Those costs do not include the road trip, which we will organize together at the lowest cost possible.

The cost of the Bootcamp which is 60 EUR will be deducted from the program fee in case you choose to continue.

If you are a statushouder in Amsterdam, please talk to your Klantmanager. They know about DELITELABS and should try to support you.

If transportation should be an issue for you, please let us know during the interview so we may find a solution together, but please know that DELITELABS does not cover transportation cost.

We target both, aspiring entrepreneurs who want to professionalize as well as individuals who are not sure yet if an entrepreneurial future is the right thing for them. We are the safe-zone for you to find out.

If you are from a corporate, please visit our Corporate Collaboration page.

While we do want to help with economic integration, we do not want to interfere with your potential asylum application. DELITELABS is only a training program. If you don’t have status yet, you won’t start your own company whilst being with us, nor will you be able to earn any money through our program. Feel free to contact us if you want to discuss this in more depth.

We look at degrees as a proxy for that you probably know something about something. If you can demonstrate that you are good at what you want to do, then that’s also fine. We will find that out during the interview.
You can apply as a team or individually. If you don’t have a team then you will probably find one with us. If you already have one, you may find your missing roles at DELITELABS.

We are in touch with the local ecosystem. So be assured that if you create something substantial it won’t go unnoticed. But after our program, you should be able to answer this question for yourself.

We offer an end to end journey, if you find out that after the 3-month program you’re not completely ready yet to launch your business, no worries. We can continue helping you. Let’s discuss the options.
