Are you passionate about your work and your organization?

Are you eager to make sure it’s futureproof?

Are you bold enough to make time for it?

Then you’re the entrepreneur or intrapreneur we’re looking for! This Kickstart Innovation Bootcamp was specifically created for the positive troublemakers who want to make a dent in the universe. 

What can you expect?

  1. Knowledge and insights about innovation, technology and customer centricity.
  2. Concrete case story examples of successful corporate and startup entrepreneurs.
  3. Defining and experiencing the first steps of your future.
  4. Networking with likeminded humans. And maybe with a robot or 2.
  5. An avalanche of inspiration and ideas.
  6. A unique sense of urgency to act.

We’ll take you on an eye-opening 3-day journey (with a one-day aftercare) to kickstart your innovation!

Day 1: WHY?

Every successful new beginning starts with a ‘why’? We’ll help you see the potential of disruption for your work and business from a global perspective. Welcome to your Day After Tomorrow!

Day 2: HOW?

How can technology help you to do things differently? How can you rethink yourself and your business for the future? Where can you start? We'll help you on your way with some of the latest evolutions in the matter.

Day 3: WHO?

Now that you’ve been submerged in innovation, how can you transfer that experience to your team? How can you invite and engage them to join your journey? Innovation is a network, not an individual!

Day 4: AFTERCARE 

Within 3 months, we’ll meet again for a pitch day and offer you a fresh perspective on your plans and actions! We’ll kickstart the session with a storytelling workshop to help you shape your plan and story. Before you know it, you’ll be rocking the pitch arena stage! Our innovation jury will vote a winner who’ll be invited to present and share the ambition during the next nexxworks alumni café.
