10K is the pre-incubator program of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. It is a half year program, organized by the AUAS to help you develop your innovative and entrepreneurial idea into a startup with the potential to make a real impact.
10K is the flagship program of the entrepreneurship program and it aims to help AUAS students to help them and their ideas become startup ready. We do this by providing mentorship, masterclasses and the use of evidence-based methods.
Each half year, we select a maximum of 12 teams with an innovative idea them to develop a business model which enables them to start their own startup or scale the idea in an existing environment.
For 20 weeks, these teams are coached by, go to a program using among other things 24 steps of disciplined entrepreneurship, gain access to mentors, get more than 12 masterclasses to work on their knowledge and skills and the whole program culminates in a Dragons’ Den in which they have to prove to be startup ready.
