What is FlopCamp?

FlopCamps are entrepreneurial games where kids aged 12 to 16, motivated to succeed, will team up to experiment with and experience the phases of start-up creation, from ideation to prototyping, from testing to business modelling.
But remember… in the entrepreneurial game, flops are the norm, not the exception!

Will you masterfully succeed or, more likely, gracefully fail?

Why FlopCamp?

Maybe your child is the next great entrepreneur. Maybe you yourself are the next great entrepreneur, the next gamechanger who will solve our global challenges. Test your creativity and find out if you have an entrepreneurial mindset!
At FlopCamp you will understand how entrepreneurs think and execute and will learn to think out-of-the-box. You will experience the entrepreneurial process within a team while engaging with coaches, customers and competitors. Fun is guaranteed!
