What can you expect?

Over the next four months, you’ll make bold but well thought-out leaps to reach your goals. Our mentors, coaches and experts will guide you through the program with their intensive support. Ready for explosive growth?

A small selection of start-ups

At Birdhouse, we choose to admit only a very limited number of start-ups. That way, you are guaranteed intensive personal guidance, every step of the way. The program will be perfectly suited to the ambitions of your start-up.

50K Financing

Have you made it through the decision process? Then you’ll receive financing of €50,000 by means of a bullet loan, from us in collaboration with Belfius. You don’t have to personally vouch for this. You’ll have to repay this financing within a period of 3 years.

Dedicated mentoring

During the program, more than 35 renowned mentors will be available to you. Two of them will join your team as advisors and confidants. They’ll share their expertise, make their network available and challenge you to go further than you ever thought was possible. There’ll also be topic mentors to advise you on specific domains.

Financial support

Our network includes the right people to raise the necessary capital. We’ll put you in touch with investors, draw up a financing plan together and guide you in the negotiation of your terms.

Together we’ll develop a strong, detailed pitch to convince potential investors of your start-up.

Coworking

We’ll grant you access to our Meetdistrict coworking spaces in Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels. Here you’ll work alongside other participating start-ups in the fun atmosphere of our coworking spaces. Don’t miss out on the afterworks!

Advisory Board

Your advisors will consist of a mix of personalities with their own network, to which you’ll have access. Combined with their years of experience, we’ll help you in achieving the short-term goals of your start-up.

Events

You are cordially invited to our events! We regularly host the Birdhouse networking dinner. We also organize events for a broad audience around a specific start-up theme, with keynote speakers from the top of the start-up scene!

A world of expertise

At Birdhouse, we offer you unlimited knowledge and expertise in the fields of legislation, funding, marketing, sales and more. Our mentors and partners are ready to help you, while our start-up coach is ready to connect the right experts to your start-up.

Valuable network

You’ll have access to our network of professionals who’ll be important to your start-up. We’ll put you in touch with investors, partners, alumni and other driven entrepreneurs, who in turn will provide essential connections.

Work hard, play hard

Next to all that hard work, there is also room to relax and for teambuilding! Christmas parties, summer BBQs, laser games, escape rooms, visits to Bocadero in Antwerp and Gentse Feesten… Or simply a cold beer and a slice of pizza in our kitchen!

Time for growth

Throughout the program, we will review your progress during the legendary KPI & Pizza nights and a mid-term evaluation, which is a perfect opportunity to receive constructive feedback from our mentors. This will allow you to continue to grow in the right direction.

After four months, it’s time to graduate. It’ll be a graduation you won’t quickly forget! During the ceremony, you’ll give an impressive final pitch to investors and other important guests. We will provide a demo stand where you can grow your network even further!

Focus days with keynote speakers

We could all use a little inspiration now and then. During the program, the most accomplished speakers from the start-up world will discuss the best ways to tackle specific topics within marketing, sales and finance. Knowledge, here we come!
