Start & Grow

The process of setting up and developing a business is not just an adventure, but also a real challenge. Having the right idea is key, but one must also have a good dose of passion and persistence.

Entrepreneurs are driven by:

  • Passion for their own ingenuity
  • Autonomy and independence
  • Reaping the rewards of one’s achievements
  • Ability of seizing an opportunity to respond to a challenge
  • Be their own boss
  • Need to achieve personal fulfillment

Aspiring entrepreneurs feel it in their bones – so are YOU ready to have a diagnosis of your dream project?

Most businesses start with one compelling idea — whether it’s a service people need, a product that would make life easier, or something that combines both. You may already have an idea of what you want to do or you may be juggling between a number of projects – there are many ways to go about when setting up your business.

Optinnov provides strategic guidance in the preparation of your business plan and establishment of your business model. Moreover, we can also assist in the setting up or takeover of a business as well as development of an incubator.

Development through sourcing and crowdsourcing

How can crowdsourcing help your company grow?

Crowdsourcing, also known as “Innovation Participative” is about assembling/using the creativity, the intelligence and the know-how of a large number of people to find the best solutions to specific problems encountered by your company.

Keeping in mind the proper growth of your company, you will need experts by your side. A company needs as much expertise as possible; accounting, marketing, sales and it isn’t always easy to find the “right” expert.

With the help of our platform DreamTakeoff, we connect you with professionals of various fields, which allows you to find the best suited expert for your specific needs. DreamTakeoff not only allows you to compare the fee/price/cost of different providers/ contractors but also enables you to call for tenders for your specific projects to acquire adequate help

The development and funding of incubators

Optinnov provides support in the design, funding, governance and implementation of your academic or business incubator.

  • Promoting an entrepreneurial culture amongst employees
