Would you love to create a positive impact in your surroundings and society? Do you have a dream of running your own business one day?

HUBS Pre-incubator is the place to develop your business idea in a sustainable way! Our 8-week program combines the methods of team learning, purposeful development of team working skills alongside the traditional business development. 

Participating in this pre-incubator will also earn you 5 credits so it will help you forward with your studies too. 

I did not know what to expect from the course and I was very pleasantly surprised. I felt safe to speak up about my thoughts and it was an awesome experience to see my concept flourish. I learned how to work on and articulate the details in a professional way, frame it to the market and ready it for further development.

The highlight of the course is how everyone is available to bounce around ideas. It is amazing how that clarifies things and makes the vision take shape.
