Business Accelerator Lab

Present your strategy and challenges to get recommendations from a panel of advisors!

The Business Accelerator Lab (BAL) programme is designed to connect French start-ups/Entrepreneurs based in Singapore with a panel of advisors and industry experts.
The Entrepreneur will present its business plan and strategic challenges and get insights, recommendations and contacts from experts, during a BAL session set up by the French Chamber of Commerce.

The panel of advisors is composed of entrepreneurs and experts from various sectors and diverse functions such as Finance, Marketing, Business Development, Funding, Legal, etc.

Objective: Helping Startups & Entrepreneurs to answer their challenges and advise them on decision-making thanks to a panel of experts.

How does it work?

During the session, the Entrepreneur can share his/her current business issues and then benefit from the advisors' perspective and advice.

Conduct of the session:

  • Introduction and presentation of the Entrepreneur and company (background/vision/mission etc.)
  • Pitch about the company's forecasts and challenges (strategy plan, business plan, development objectives, HR organisation, etc.)
  • Followed by a discussion with the Advisors and Q&A.

At the end of the session, the advisors will gather in close doors to debrief about the Entrepreneur's presentation.
Then, the Entrepreneur will be able to listen to the advisors' feedbacks and get a "restitution document" from the French Chamber, summing up the challenges raised and pointing out the recommendations given by the panel of advisors.


What is the role of the Advisors?

  • Listen, ask questions and challenge the Entrepreneur on his plan, his methodology and objectives and offer suggestions.
  • Help the entrepreneur keep a sense of perspective, review their problems and find solutions.
  • Share their experience to help the Entrepreneur to find solutions and to break isolation.
  • Provide criteria for assessment and possibly refer the Entrepreneur to investors, collaborators and service providers (lawyers, accounting firms, PR / marketing, etc.) in line with his business and objectives.


After the Business Accelerator Lab session, the Entrepreneur may require a DUO Mentoring programme to help him further implement the recommendations given by the advisors.
