First Step Towards Success: Validation

Entrepreneurs are often very excited about their new business ideas, and they should be. But it is easy to lose sight of possible hurdles in this phase. Will your technological solution work the way you imagined? Are customers willing to pay for your service?

In over 10 years of experience at SBIC, we have found that validation is the most important step to take at the start of any new business endeavour.

That is why we now offer several validation tracks to help entrepreneurs shape and perfect their plans. The Earth Observation Track gives participants in HUBspot Leiden's Startup Academy the chance to learn what satellite imagery and data can do for business. And in our very own Rocket Program startups looking to exploit space technology are supported in fine-tuning their business plans.
