Incubator Program

Our Incubator Program

From business idea to investors in 4 months


We enable newcomers to become a central part of Dutch communities by helping them start successful businesses. We strive to maximize their chances of professional success by offering 4-months incubator programs with high quality training and individualised coaching to support entrepreneurs to launch, fund and grow their businesses. First month of the incubator program is intensive workshops that cover all business topics from creating your financial accounts to market research and including cross cultural training. The next two months is about testing the business model, and proving your value proposition. Last month is about writing the business plan, preparing for investment and Final pitches. We offer programs in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.



Throughout the four months the entrepreneurs will have an individualised team composing of motivated student consultants, an experienced business coach, and the Forward Incubator team facilitator. This support ensures that the business plan is solid and the enterprise is ready for launch. During the program, our corporate partners provide expert consulting, advice and training sessions on areas such as finance, strategy, marketing, legal.
