Here at B3, we are re-shaping the possibilities for entrepreneurial potential. The venture accelerator completes the ecosystem that will shape the new entrepreneurial leaders of tomorrow.
As BUSEM’s central component of co-curricular activity, the B3 Venture Accelerator is an incubation center where students, faculty, and industry practitioners come together. It’s an integrated teaching platform that allows you to experience facing real-time situations that develop your ability to think creatively and use an Entrepreneurially Creative Mindset to solve problems. It is the venue where students carry out their practicum coursework, culminating in the launch of their real-world venture project.
At B3, you will find encouragement in an environment that enhances the fostering of new relationships and potential future business partners. Not only amongst your peers, but real opportunities will come from close contact with the business world itself – through BUSEM’s extensive private-public-academic (PPA) network. Gain exposure to high-potential sources of financing, from private companies [such as the Bangkok Creative Element] and commercial banks, to market-driven exit strategies such as the Market for Alternative Investments (MAi).
Our affiliate organizations are here with BUSEM to provide you with the skills and abilities that will put you in the best position to achieve your goals. B3 will sharpen your ability to navigate change, accommodate ambiguity, disassemble complexity, and motivate teams in a common purpose to solve the issues that will define your entrepreneurial potential.
Whether you’re starting a business, creating a venture in a family enterprise, buying a business, commercializing a technology, buying a franchise, or growing a non-profit, the B3 Venture Accelerator supports and advances every variety of entrepreneurial endeavor – from ideation to exit. We tailor one-to-one support starting from within the practicum modules, and continue to provide service opportunities to your business even after your completion of the course.
At B3, we provide resources based on venture stage and type, as well as entrepreneur experience and goals. Each phase has a dedicated faculty advisor, provides open lab space to collaborate, experiment, and work, and presents a range of services:
