Innovators academy


Get useful feedback from our angel investors on your business plan and pitch during the Venture Workshop.

We provide entrepreneurs with individual coaching by business angels and advice on how to become investment-ready.

Academies are 2-day events during which selected entrepreneurs work on different aspects of their businesses:

  • Innovators Academy: IP strategy and business model
  • Investment Academy: Due Diligence
  • Ask An Angel Academy: Investment strategy

At the end of the two days, entrepreneurs get the chance to put in practice the lessons learned by pitching in front of a panel of investment experts. Q&A sessions where entrepreneurs freely ask open questions to angels in the room are also on the agendas! 

After a few years of implementation and following the global sanitary crisis, the format of academies has evolved to address the various needs of entrepreneurs, help them pivot and identify new opportunities to better bounce back after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The lack of access to finance being the main obstacle for the development of innovative companies in the region, academies are also the opportunity to discuss investment environments in each of the 7 countries, how to make the best of in-kind investments and corporate-startup collaboration. BSOs are also invited in order for them to get the know-how on how to assist on this aspect.
