Meet the facilitators


Andres is a Senior Lecturer in Marketing at the Rotterdam Business School (RUAS). He is a certified Design Sprint Facilitator, and he is also a facilitator for the largest Startup Community in the world Techstars Startup Weekend.

Arthur von Kriegenbergh

Arthur helps corporates to work like startups, and startups to launch successfully. He has run 60+ Design Sprints for companies like BMW and ING, and has a YouTube channel about workshops.

A message from the facilitators:

How often do you think about a Startup idea for months, but you never get to action, then a couple of years later, you read in the news that someone raised capital and are successful with the same idea you had?

We believe every founder has at least one story like that. When talking to early-stage founders, we realized how difficult it was to get it right, and how crucial this early stage was.  Founders have shared with us their challenges:

- "I don't know what's the first step is to build my business"
- "How can I test I have a good idea?"
- "Should I build something now or find a co-founder?"

We decided to start a journey to help founders and Startup teams in their entrepreneurial path. In the last two years, our approach has helped 50+ early-stage founders test their Startup ideas successfully. We'd love to help you launch your Startup better and faster.
