You are ready to join the Startup Academy if:


• You have an innovative idea but not a (good) plan or you have a running business with already a business plan
• Your are looking for funding or exposure
• Your concept is innovative ( not a franchise for example )
• Your concept is scalable not only for the Caribbean market but you want to go ‘global’; conquer the world!

After the academy there is a selection round with a few investors and experts; live and through a livestream New York, the Netherlands and the Caribbean. The winner of the Curaçao edition can either join the semi-finals in Curaçao in July 2018 or in October 2018 in the Netherlands.

If you are the best in one of the semi-finals, you have the chance to participate in the 5th edition of the Dutch finals on November 28th, 2018 in Haarlem. Haarlem is a region with a large community of investors, interested to participate and invest in young companies. Until now investments were made between 200.000 euro and 500.000 by informal investors on the final event or within a half year afterwards.
