From Idea to Startup is a pre-incubator for teams. It combines team coaching and individual development with the development of sustainable ideas and business activities.
The course will support teams on their first steps towards entrepreneurship. You will receive coaching for building a successful team and for developing and refining your business idea. The pre-incubator will help teams take a giant leap in developing their business idea. In addition, the teams will expand their knowledge and gain experience of building and working effectively with a world-class team.
As this course is primarily meant for existing teams, the recommendation is an existing business idea and/ or team.
The students and the coach tailor the exact content based on team specific / individual needs. Course includes mandatory lessons on lean methodology and startup development. In addition, teams are instructed to read articles, literature and study other online materials on relevant entrepreneurial themes (for example MOOC-courses). The gained knowledge is then applied to practice via various validations, evaluations and business plans.
Each team has training sessions, where acute startup development topics are handled in a dialogue as well as teams get to share their progress, ask for advice and receive coaching. Coaches, team colleagues and working life mentor support the process from idea to startup along the way. Student will draw a study plan and reports the results in separately agreed manner (goals, outcomes and working hours documented).
