The PANTHER programme enables innovative minds to develop their business idea into a fundable and sustainable business plan.

We offer an intensive training and coaching programme consisting of five three-day sessions that offer a dynamic mix of lectures, work sessions and pitching activities. Each session (from Thursday to Friday) is held at a different location and hosted by organisations that excel in entrepreneurship:

This international setup offers a unique opportunity to learn from and be inspired by a variety of European ecosystems and to anchor this knowledge in your company’s development process.
