Within the European PANTHER program, participants develop their business idea into a fundable and sustainable business plan. We offer an intensive training and coaching trajectory consisting of 5 sessions which combine lectures, development and pitching activities. Each session (from Wednesday till Friday) is organized on a different location (Leuven, Eindhoven, Enschede-Deventer, Hamburg, Antwerp) and hosted by organizations that excel in knowledge-intensive entrepreneurship (Flanders Business School, NIKOS and PLD - University of Twente, TU Hamburg, KU Leuven, Fontys University of Applied Sciences). This set-up offers an unique opportunity to learn from and become inspired by different local entrepreneurial eco-systems across Europe and to engrain this knowledge in the development trajectory of the venture.
Inspired by the TI:GER program developed at the Scheller School (Georgia Tech & Emory, Atlanta), we decided to call our program PANTHER: Propagating Action & Networks Towards (Higher) Entrepreneurial Results.
If you are working on an exciting (technological) opportunity with European (or even global) potential and currently developing your idea into a sustainable value proposition (with a corresponding business plan), this boot camp is for you.
Over a period of 7 months we guide and coach you and your entrepreneurial team (we encourage participants to join with a team of 2/3) through the process of articulating and refining your vision, and translating it into a unique resource configuration and business model that can become sustainable and scalable.
Both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs are encouraged to apply and will be equally considered for joining this program.
