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 that combine lectures, development and pitching activities. Each session (from Wednesday till Friday) is organized on a different location (Twente, Leuven, Heerlen, Eindhoven, Antwerp) and hosted by organizations that excel in knowledge-intensive entrepreneurship (Flanders Business School, Nikos U Twente, KU Leuven, Open Universiteit, Fontys University of Applied Sciences). This set-up offers a unique opportunity to learn from and become inspired by different local entrepreneurial ecosystems 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.
