DO!, the centre for entrepreneurship at Ghent University, yearly launches Expedition DO!, a unique 7 month startup programme for entrepreneurial talent.

The mission of the expedition is to support and stimulate Ghent University students and researchers to develop critical entrepreneurial skills to start, build and grow their business idea into a successful startup.

On top of that, the expedition rewards the 3 winning teams with prizes worth € 2.000 each to further boost their business.

Thanks to the help of an extensive network of experts and existing industry accelerator programmes early ideas will be developed into scalable business models. The partners of Expedition DO! will be part of our experts network, inspirational talks and/or jury team throughout the track.

Expedition DO! also prepares its participants for accelerator and incubator programmes outside of the university.
