Nurturing Entrepreneurship, Startups and Talent
The first TechStars-style startup accelerator in Belgium
NEST’up is a highly selective program that includes the following base criteria:
- We only select teams of 2 or 3 founders with complementary profiles. If you are alone, you should find a co-founder.
- Your product can be an online service, a mobile application or a physical product, but it must be innovative and scalable. You are supposed to have already started working on your idea. There must be a prototype or a preliminary market study somewhere.
- Your product must be financeable, which means that you will be able to run something during the Demo Day at the end of the programme. If there are 3 years of research and development needed for your product to be marketable, it will not be pre-selected.
- Your expansion strategy must go beyond Belgium.
- We attach great importance to the team, its strength, ability to be work with others and take feedback.
