The IDEA App platform at a glance

As the backbone of the program, the IDEA App platform offers a gamified and step by step experience that allows entrepreneurs to create their business plans and validate their model. Far from theory, the pedagogy will help you in a practical way in your mentoring process!

Our methodology invites entrepreneurs to “get out there”, talk to people, research, and validate their ideas. As a mentor, you will be there for your entrepreneur every week  challenging their assumptions and offering a fresh perspective.
