For who

This EIT Health Bootcamp program targets business professionals, students, PhDs, engineers and scientists who want to test the commercial feasibility of their ideas. Participants work in teams to develop the skills needed to launch their ideas as a startup.


Find your market/product fit, a validated customer segment and a value proposition design that responds to the actual needs of your customer. We use methods from Steve Blank’s Lean Launchpad and Alexander Osterwalder’s Value Proposition Design. You will test the correctness of your assumptions by talking to as many potential customers as possible.

The most valuable lesson for us was market-fit: we found potential launching customers not only in Africa, but also in Europe. The Validation Lab really challenged us to think critically about our ambitions and business plan and identify our a beachhead market.
My role as mentor is very broad: I help startups through the process of validation by helping them to connect to people in the business, help them with their business plan and convince them to do what's right.
