Got an exciting early stage business idea?
Need help developing it for maximum success?
DABS Labs is for you!
If you have the seed of an idea or you are at an early stage of start-up, you can join the innovative DABS Labs. With the help of other prospective business owners, our expert facilitators will help you explore your business idea in more detail and turn it into a more rounded concept.

This is complemented with one-to-one support and mentoring and the opportunity to participate on DABS Pioneers and/or DABS Teams.
