DELITELABS – a non profit organization incorporated in Amsterdam – is organizing it’s first event in Valencia, Spain. 20 participants are going to have an oportunity from September to December 2015 experience curriculum with the aim to find out everything that one needs to startup a business idea. People with all backgrounds are welcome to register – from programmers to anthropologists.
Curriculum includes different modules: business models, self-development, organizational design, storytelling, marketing and many others. It is free of charge for those who are going to succeed during the selection process. BUT if an alumni will become the next google, there are three things they ask for in a gentlemen’s agreement:
- promise to really do good
- remember where you came from
- feel free to donate an amount of equity that you deem justified.
Registration is now open here. Organizers are going to get in touch with the applicants to test their motivation and decide on admittance.
DELITELABS is an organization with purely altruistic principles that intends to provide free professional advice to young people who want to evaluate an entrepreneurial future. Professionals involved are not payed and collaborate with the organization on a voluntary basis.
Christof Hawle, founder of DELITELABS: “After having advised corporates for the past 10 years, I have learned while helping my friends that often relatively little motivation and structuring is sufficient to make huge steps towards an own business. DELITELABS is the vehicle to offer such advice in a scaled up manner, as well as providing the safe zone for aspiring entrepreneurs to learn to walk on their own feet. Bottom line, I just tremendously enjoy growing and inspiring young minds.”
Organization has started it’s crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to support it’s idea. Money collected is going to be used to cover the set up and running cost until the end of 2015.
