VentureLab participants are entitled to coaching hours. Matching you with a coach takes place on the second day of the kick-off training session. A coach is matched with you, based on your expressed needs, a personal assessment and the development phase of your company in terms of your personal-, team- and business development.

Coaches involved in our programme all have business experience. They have been selected on their capacities to provide coaching on all aspects of personal, team and business development. One of their prime responsibilities is to help you prepare for progress monitoring.
