About this program

During a nexxworks innovation bootcamp, you learn from the best. For each bootcamp we select born entrepreneurs, technology wizards and people thriving in fast-changing environments. Just like you, they are eager to learn, share their knowledge and grow stronger together. Innovation is not made to stay on an island within an organization, it’s meant to conquer the world. Are you in?

Everyday, we start at our basecamp with mind-opening keynotes that help setting the scene. Topics include the latest technologies, failures (yes that’s innovation too), cutting edge transformation insights and case studies from entrepreneurs both big and small.

After that, we explore the wild west of innovation and learn from companies in the field.

Each day will be wrapped up by one of our nexxworks’ coaches who help you craft an individual plan that works for you and your organization. The goal is to create the necessary knowledge to transform yourself, your team and maybe even your whole organization... At the end of day three, you'll go home full of ideas, inspiration... and homework!

4 months after the bootcamp, we’ll invite you to a full day of reflection and sharing at the Bootcamp Reunion!


Even though we have a pretty good idea about the future, we don’t have a crystal ball. Just like so many of us, we have to wait and see how things develop. However, we want to give you all information you need. 

As soon as we can, we share the date with everyone who leaves his credentials below.

I'm intrigued and want to know more!

Awesome! Leave your credentials below and we'll get in touch with some inspiring insights.
