• By recommendation or invitation

    Our selection process is simple. We either invite you, or ask you to provide relevant recommendations.


    By recommendation

    Gather two relevant recommendations and add a strong and triggering motivation letter, to be invited to our selection day. A relevant recommendation is written by someone from the work field with relevant experience (e.g. a superior from a company or a teacher/professor at your previous university).


    By invitation

    If you are recommended by someone from our direct network (e.g. our coaches, or one of our alumni) you can be invited directly to the selection day without sending in the required motivation and recommendation letters.


    Meet the coaches and alumni

    During the selection day, you have the opportunity to meet several coaches or alumni. When most of the encounters are concluded positive, your application is confirmed. Our program starts September 24th 2018. The remaining selection day is scheduled for July 7th. When we reach enough participants to start the program, we will have an additional selection day in August.
