Is the program Spirit of Enterprise for free?

How long will the program take?


The program will take 12 weeks in total. The majority of the program will be digital / remote but every Friday will take place at Nyenrode Business University.

When will the program start?


The program will start February 3rd, 2023.

Do I need to have a start-up idea to join the program?


Not at all. In fact, upon entering the program you will be asked to forget about your idea and start working on developing a team first and foremost.

Does the program focus on a specific vertical or domain like DeepTech, AI or EdTech?


Yes and no. We are convinced that every startup should focus on impact today. Basically we encourage a focus on anything  related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG). Or, in more simple words. Anything that will not harm the planet or its inhabitants could be considered.

Is it necessary to develop a tech startup?


No. Most of the startups these days do not start by developing their own technology. The focus of startups should be mainly on using technology. We strongly believe that most startups can build a minimal viable product or service using nocode / low code / open source or other tooling and platforms.

Can I invest in the fund?


Yes! The fund is not closed yet. Investors can participate with a minimum of EUR 100.000. Contact us for more information at: info@spiritofenterprise.nl
