My Exec team is built

I test my team efficiency with other program members during workshops. A team building coach supports me to understand how I interact with my team members. After almost 2 months, I am ready to choose my team members within the program members.

I understand my industry

The program starts with a deep understanding of the competitive offers proposed on my industry. Then we conduct a 3 week exploration to interview almost 40 consumers and non-consumers of my industry.

Blue Ocean offer is built

Each steps of the process to get a new divergent "Blue Ocean" offer are followed, supported by expert trainers & coaches.

Business Plan is built and validated

Coach experts in business management and in fundraising support you to identify your Business Model and build their related Business Plan.

Offer has its prototype and is ready to be launched

15 days of immersive fast prototyping in the Hacker Houses (thanks to our partner Seed-Up) to get an operational prototype of your Blue Ocean offer

Market Validation

After offer is built and has its prototype, a market validation is followed by the program members to get feedback of their first clients. This phase can be through a crowdfunding campaign on the platform of your partner Wiseed.

Investor Meetings done

The selection jury to join the Blue Ocean STARTER is made of investors: Business Angels, Venture Capitals, investment funds, corporate funds, public funds, etc. As a consequence, you are directly selected by your potential future investors. So investors will follow your project during all the program and you will have investor presentations with them to fund your new company.

Visibility: Social networks, PR, Blue Ocean Awards

The Blue Ocean STARTER is part of the worldwide Blue Ocean Strategy network. It is integrated to Blue Ocean Awards, the annual event dedicated to market creation. All the projects built at the Blue Ocean STARTER will be pitched in front of journalists and international investors at the French Ministry for Economy, during the Blue Ocean Awards.
