From the conception of an idea to the final pitch, experience the life of a founder yourself through the seminar Startup X. Challenge yourself to experience the life of an entrepreneur and learn how to attain resources to realize your vision.

Go through the different districts with us to let your idea become a validated business model. You will start your entrepreneurial journey in the Opportunity district, where you will open your eyes to the world's needs and discover your core values and competencies. In the Problem and Solutiondistricts, you will find out the pains of your customers and how you can design, build and test a solution for them. In the Market district, you will identify the competitors and learn how to reach your customers. The Company district will enable you to set up your own organization, including the core people, core assets, and key activities. Your ability to express your business idea to investors and stakeholders will be developed in the Communication district. Prototyping, business model development, and pitching are part of the seminar.

Learning Objectives

The pedagogical approach is that of action learning. In a team, you will experience typical challenges and processes related to setting up a new business and develop the corresponding entrepreneurial competences.
