UPDATE: the Mercator Launch Summer School is all filled up for this year. So you can’t sign up for Summer School anymore. But there is some good news: you can sign up for our next IMPROVE program that will start in October.

Do you have an interesting business idea and are you ready to become an entrepreneur? Join the Mercator Launch Summer School. During this one week crash course you will learn how to validate your business concept, write a business plan, build a team and work on your funding strategy.

We work with the proven ‘lean startup’ methodology for assessing and shaping your venture. In this week we will address all aspects of starting your own company and you will have plenty of time to discuss your ideas with fellow (experienced) entrepreneurs.

We believe in learning by doing, so get ready to take action!

During the Summer School you will:

  • Find out whether an entrepreneurial career is suited for you

  • Discover your own entrepreneurial skills, talent and ambition

  • Create and fine-tune a solid business plan

  • Know how to build and manage a start-up

  • Receive 1-on-1 coaching during the week

After the Summer School, you’ll be able to decide whether a career as an entrepreneur is right for you. And if so, you will have gained the right tools, insights and skills to proceed.
