Each workshop guides you through the most important stages from idea to founding a company. The workshops take place once a week in the evening for three months. All workshops are hands-on, no boring lectures. The goal is to test your idea and to learn new skills on the way. We will give you guidance, instructions and mentorship on the way. (Due to the Covid-19 all workshops are held online).
We will connect you to coaches and experienced founders in our network to support you on your journey.
During the Startup Academy we organize Community events to connect you with other participants: Exchange with like-minded people and support each other on the way.
In the e-Learning area you can review summaries of all workshops, find important documents, links and additional videos.
We have designed a booklet with all the important information and great exercises to guide you on your entrepreneurial journey and to build up your business.
During your entrepreneurial journey we will show you a lot of great tools which will save you time and money.
We celebrate the beginning of each batch with a Kick-Off (with all participants) and a Demo Day in the end (to pitch your product to the public).
After successfully completing the Startup Academy you will be handed over a certificate with detailed information about the modules and learnings.
All participants (including the coaches and mentors & alumni) form a great mastermind. When you are eligible to start the program you will get access to the community.
