CONNECTING BREAKTHROUGH INNOVATION WITH MARKET OPPORTUNITIES

FAQs

  1. Why join Mind & Market ?

    You are an innovative project owner, but you lack some necessary skills to materialize it (IT, marketing, design, management, technology, aso). Mind & Market helps you indentify entrepreneurs which can associate their knowledge to yours

    You don’t master all the aspects of business creation? Mind & Market will put you in contact with supportive and educational partners.

    You are willing to confront your project with companies and market experts in order to get a feedback on their interest and the project’s feasibility? Mind & Market organises networking events, an annual Forum and provides you with a web platform where you can exchange directly with them.

  2. How do I join the Mind & Market community?

    Click the button “register / create an account" up right.

  3. Is Mind & Market a competition? Is there a prize to win?

    No. Mind & Market is essentially a networking tool (see tab “About”). Mind & Market can nevertheless punctually organise competitions with participation on a voluntary basis. Registration to Mind & Market doesn’t lead to participation to those competitions.

  4. Are there any selection criteria for posting a project on the website and participating to Mind & Market events ?

    The only selection criteria is the innovative aspect of your project (see hereunder). Mind & Market is open to everyone.

  5. Is my project innovative ?

    An innovative project develops a new product / process / service or improves existing ones. Mind & Market supports all kinds of innovation, in exact sciences as much as in social sciences. However, if you have a doubt about the innovative aspect of your project, you can previously send an email toadmin@mindandmarket.bewith a project description. We will give you our feedback upon short notice.

  6. How do I protect my ideas ? How far can I go in the public description of my project ? Do I have to sign a non-disclosure agreement with my discussion partners?

    We draw your attention to the fact that all project contents are visible to any Mind&Market subscriber. Therefore, you should not voluntarily disclose confidential data that needs to be protected with a patent or a non-disclosure agreement. However, if you wish to make the most out of your Mind & Market experience, please keep in mind that you have to be explicit about the nature of your project, your objectives and your requirements. Projects described too briefly or imprecisely won’t attract the interest of members from the Mind & Market community. Any questions ? Think of Picarréthat ensures free continuity of their services everywhere in Wallonia.

    If you are a university-based researcher, your best advisor and privileged partner is your university’s technology transfer office.
