What is the delab anyway?

Flame Tree Initiative’s signature Development Entrepreneur Lab - DELab for short - is a six-day program focused on ideation and early stage startup entrepreneurs. We seek aspiring entrepreneurs who are focused on generating positive social, economic, and environmental impacts through a self-sustaining, profitable business.

our goal

Train aspiring entrepreneurs in both practical business skills and social impact measurement, so they can launch, sustain, and scale businesses that are good for their communities.

how we do it

Local academics, entrepreneurs, and other experts facilitate discussions and activities that explore a variety of concepts, depict real-life examples, and encourage participation. The curriculum is adapted to meet the needs of the participants. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all model.
