There is a reason why people don’t climb Everest on their own. With a team, you can overcome obstacles that seem impossible just by yourself. Research over the past 4 decades has shown that startups that are co-founded by a team are more successful. In the Co-Lab workshop, as a single founder, founding team, or entrepreneurial minded person, you can find that new member of your dream team to help you reach the top!

We know it’s hard. We see our entrepreneurs struggle with team-related issues every day. In startup life, you need someone to brainstorm with, someone who will ask you the hard questions but also someone you can celebrate success with! This is why we facilitate the connections between entrepreneurs through organising Co-Labs. A Co-Lab is a 0,5-day workshop at YES!Delft where we challenge you to collaborate with fellow entrepreneurs. Participation is free.

Startup life is inherently messy, reasons why teams matter
  • Time is limited – you cannot do everything alone
  • In order to tackle all startup challenges, you need a diverse set of skills and perceptions
  • Startups are 83% more likely to succeed when the team exists of at least 2 people
  • VC’s mainly invest in startups that exist of >1 founders
  • You can pull each other through the lows and celebrate the highs
  • A balanced tech/business team has 2.9x more user growth than an unbalanced team
  • 23% of failed startups fail because of team issues
The workshop
  • Workshop on business idea ideation & teamwork (a business idea or team not required!)
  • Welcome and introduction about YES!Delft, services and programs, and meet our team
  • Friday afternoon drinks with fellow entrepreneurs and YES!Delft startups
