About this Event

(The deadline to apply is set on October 15th 2019. Only 10 startups will be selected).

Organized by LeanSquare, a VC fund based in Liège, and Liege Airport, this program aims to support the most promising international air freight start-ups.

10 start-ups will be selected to be part of the program. Teams will be individually coached by experienced entrepreneurs and air freight industry experts to set up a financial dossier and potentially raise funds by presenting their projects in front of a panel of investors.

The program will kick off with a series of workshops focused on entrepreneurship, innovation and communication. These workshops will cover topics including sales, negotiations, investors relations, growth hacking, digital strategy, communications and storytelling.

Running from November 7th to November 14th, the week of acceleration will consist of:

• Individual mentorships with experts

• Guidance developing financial proposals

• Complimentary access to the WeCargo Summit & networking events

• On-stage presentations at the WeCargo pitch competition

• One on one meetings with Air Cargo executives and VC's

• If you have questions, please contact: bma@liegeairport.com

The winning team will get the chance to present its project to Qatar or Alibaba HQ (flights included) and marketing support from our host partners. More great prizes to be announced soon.

Deadline to apply: October 15th

Announcement of the 10 selected startups: October 20th.

Alibaba, Qatar Airways Cargo and Orange are participating in this acceleration. Representatives from our two host partners will be on-hand during the program and executives may be assigned as on-going mentors to start-ups within the program.
