During an intense 8-week acceleration period, your team will get hands-on support while you test and validate your business idea.

The purpose of Activate is to enable your team to validate your idea and develop a prototype, as well as prepare you for the Incubate program. The program runs three times a year during either semester or during the Summer. 

If you have a team and a business idea that has international potential and takes sustainability into consideration, you can apply. 

During the program, your team will receive office space at the renowned co-working complex A house, tailored workshops, personalized mentoring and coaching on a weekly basis, access to the network of corporate partners and investors, as well as access to the valuable network of other entrepreneurs in the environment.

Since the workshops and meetings take place during lunch hour and late afternoons, you can attend Activate while studying or working full-time. However, you should still be able to commit to working 50% on your business idea.

The program is very hands-on and in order to get the most out of it, your team should attend all the weekly coaching sessions and workshops. We are looking for ambitious teams who want to develop their ideas quickly and who are both agile and adaptive in pursuit of finding the best problem-solution and product-market fit.
