Startup Camp 2024

23. Feb - 25. Feb

From idea to business model in just one weekend!

At the startup camp, participants deal intensively with the various components of knowledge-based business ideas. Their own ideas are put to the test and developed into a mature business model. By using canvas models, rapid prototyping and the analysis of various risk scenarios, the planned offer is concretized, the target group is specified and the revenue model is checked for feasibility and scalability. This creates a solid basis for the company.

In a camp atmosphere, the participants receive useful startup knowledge, concretize their startup idea and benefit from the exchange of experiences with other young entrepreneurs. The seminar offers concrete information on the most important questions and problems relating to startups, an examination of one's own startup personality and numerous individual advisory services. In this campus atmosphere, participants receive comprehensive support for their startup projects.

Registration is required.
