Services - Entrepreneur for a day


Everyone is talking about startups, customer development, bootstrapping, agile programming, ... and how startup culture and new ways of working result in competitive advantage. We can all though agree that such methods are not applicable in a large enterprise context, right? ...


Having worked with over 120 startups and large multinationals, we learned to combine lean startup methodology with large enterprise execution to distil insights and develop solutions that work in established businesses. "Entrepreneur for a day" is an immersive workshop that lets participants experience entrepreneurial methods by applying them on pre-selected, business-specific examples.


The workshop focuses on introducing startup thinking, tools and culture in a manner relevant and applicable to large enterprises. We bring you together with expert advisors, allowing you to access their combined wealth of startup and business experience and receive personalised advice on questions specific and relevant to you and your business. All of this in a confidential and supportive setting.
