Startup Program
Transformation by Action

Our new startup incubation program fosters entrepreneurship by pushing proactively entrepreneurs to action.

ACTION is the DNA of our program: we guide early stage startuppers, project or idea owners to accelerate their business development in a “Transformation by Action” mode. Therefore, we have set up a pool of entrepreneurial coaches having strong International business experience .

The incubation process is built on value creation: You want to join our process? So, you have to deliver value ! We are not supporting Inventors; we actively support Innovators.
