For the ninth time we open the doors of our accelerator. Until December 20, you can register for an accelerator program of stature! This will give your start-up the boost it needs in these challenging times, thanks to intensive and personal coaching, our extensive network and 50,000 euro funding. But what can you actually expect when you participate in our accelerator?

Ultra-personal journey

In contrast to previous processes, almost the entire program is tailored to your start-up . We throw general talks and info overboard and determine together with you and your co-founders what you really need to grow. If you are selected for our accelerator, you can expect an intensive four-month trajectory . We start with a joint bootcamp where you focus on the mission and vision of your start-up. Some of them will also

will share their expertise and experiences.

After that, your personal trajectory will start. Based on your newly defined vision and mission, we set short and long term goals together. On the basis of this, we link your start-up to side tracks and experts. They immerse you in areas such as strategy, sales, marketing and finance, with talks and workshops.

The Birdhouse programme is intensive, but fortunately you are not alone. Our start-up coach will follow your start-up closely, and together with you, map out your ideal growth path. In addition, the entire Birdhouse team is only too happy to help you with your (practical) questions.

In these uncertain times, our accelerator can easily make the switch to a fully online program, with the same quality. So you never have to worry about the route being temporarily interrupted.

Inspiring growth environment with extensive network

You will meet regularly to discuss problems and successes and to find answers together. You can also contact our more than 100 alumni.

Our Scale-up Eagles not only attend the boot camp, but also sit on the various advisory boards. In addition, they are always available for questions and they also open up their network to you.
