Entrepeneurs and innovators are invited to participate to the first IPACSO Cyber Security bootcamp in Belgium.
The IPACSO project focuses on bringing innovation frameworks for innovators, based upon proven methodologies from other industries, but applied to the ICT Security landscape based upon experiences and expertise from other cyber security innovators.
Part of the IPACSO project, the Bootcamps are intended to be highly interactive sessions that include education and training, with direct advisory applicable to the ongoing cases or to measure the participants needs. The Innovation Bootcamps have been very successful in innovation domains.
Their typical character is
- A small number of participants 6 to 10 max
- Determining the participants interests, objectives, experience and markets in advance (to avoid conflicts of interest, and to ensure interaction)
- One or multiple motivational bootcamp instructors, with field experiences
- supported with the theoretical backgrounds provided by the IPACSO Innovation methodologies state of the art analysis and IPACSO Framework under development
- Working towards practical implementations of innovations, challenging assumptions, providing feedback into go-to-market models
- Sharpening Executive Summary and provide feedback to business case
Join us in this workshop on Tuesday, July 7th in Leuven
These highly interactive workshops are intended to field test the Innovation Framework under development, to guide innovators with practical advice, market support and information that would support the development of their business case and going to market.
Within IPACSO, the majority of the bootcamps will be Trial Bootcamps, where the plan is to field trial some of the ongoing developments in Innovation Framework, market developments and incentive schemes. Whenever feasible, demanded and appropriate the IPACSO Project Partners will organize additional bootcamps during the course of the project and beyond. IPaCSO can promote them further via best practices and during the innovation awards.
These bootcamps will be free of charge registration on the IPACSO website. An additional list of bootcamps will be organized via crowdsourcing to find additional suitable dates. If sufficient participants can be found, a bootcamp can be organized in a specific region, with selected partners and participants.
The yielding process for participants will be after initial registration based upon:
- Type of experience (business, engineering, research, mark com, …)
- Age of the innovators / innovation
- innovation stage (idea, research project, prototype, early stage start-up, new line of business, ...)
- Type of business
- Innovation ideas
