Successful entrepreneurship is very much about doing things consistently, at the right time. Verhaert’s MyStartUp program helps you in doing those right things in the right way.
Unique market focused solution dedicated to product ventures, providing a comprehensive framework of services, toolboxes and facilities to accelerate the development, launch and scale-up of your new service or product.
Too many start-ups and scale-ups fail due to poor product and service development, resulting in a weak market fit, bad cost control and quality problems.
Make your start-up fly high. While introducing you into our ecosystem, you get access to subsidy schemes, launching customers, services and facilities at reduced rates.
“By receiving support and advice on how to access the right technologies, we could put our ideas into reality. The support combined with the funding opportunities really kick our start-up further.”
Blueprint with services to accelerate your venture
We believe the core of a start-up is the product. MyStartUp is a program at European level dedicated to hardware and software product ventures. Thematic programs with different partners provide a unique ecosystem. Furthermore, selected start-ups get access to Verhaert’s innovation centers and world class product development services, from idea to market.
Roadmap, in an agile way, your product or service strategy and business model based on trend insights, benchmarking … Your place on the market will not be for granted.
Validate your idea and proposition as fast as possible to understand the true value drivers and willingness to pay. We do so by using validation tools, co-developing and addressing early customers in our international ecosystem.
Start-ups and scale-ups fail by their ability in professional product development and hence on the delivery of their promise: an innovative product, at the right cost, quality and on time. MyStartUp gives you access to Verhaert’s world class product development capabilities and infrastructure.
Having the right funding cocktail at every stage of your start-up and scale-up process is key to maintain your momentum and accelerate your venture. Get support to pitch and prepare for subsidy applications on regional, national and European level. Most of our acceleration programs provide seed money, often equity free.
As participant of MyStartUp you’re member of the Verhaert community for life. Since the start of this program we worked with hundreds of start-ups across Europe within a range of verticals from aerospace, to healthcare, consumer appliances and mobility. They connect within a network of successful mentors and partners.
