What it is

Founders’ Lab is a new model for the development of early stage startups, from idea generation and team formation, to a fully operational business. We host your team at a specially designed co-working space and we offer you our 12 month Founders’ Lab program. Interact with our coaches, mentors and other entrepreneurs, market test your product/service without necessarily having formed your legal entity, and take advantage of our unique fast track entrepreneurship training (ET) program.

How it works

In order to turn your business idea into a sustainable company, Founders’ Lab includes a 12-month (3 + 9 months) program.
