I have an idea, a project, and I want to be supported: How can I do it?
- I get in touch with MBS Entrepreneurship Center : firstname.lastname@example.org
- I’m given an appointment, I meet the team and present my project
You present your idea to the incubator team during the first appointment. We evaluate the project feasibility as well as its development potential. The project leader profile, his/her entrepreneurial ability, his/her engagement to follow the project through to completion, are also decisive.
- I pitch in front of an experts steering committee
You will have 10 minutes for presenting your idea, taking into account the remarks made during the first appointment, from a pitch together with slides if needed.
- Depending on my progress, I am directed towards the pre-incubation or incubation path.
- I sign the Charter and join the MBS incubator in pre-incubation (maximum of 1 year) or incubation (maximum of 2 years).
