Are you ready to risk 52 hours to become a great entrepreneur?
RUG VentureLab Weekend 2016 is a 3-day-long event, where aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if their startup ideas are viable.
The VentureLab Weekend will unite students and coaches from a variety of backgrounds. This event is open for anyone with or without any previous business or entrepreneurship background, and from variety of faculties, interests and professions. We will pay attention to the background and skill diversity while selecting the participants.
The VentureLab Weekend is all about building – building your competences and skills, your network, your future dream-team, and, of course, your business. For 3 days you will work on turning your idea into a working business concept. Supported by 7 different workshops, and an international group of coaches and experts from different industries, you will start on Friday with building a coalition around your idea, or joining a team that is going to work on something important for you. On Saturday and Sunday you will attend lectures and workshops, perform market research and train in pitching your ideas. Sunday evening the teams will do a final pitch for a panel of expert entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and potential investors.
You don’t need to have a very clear business idea of your own – as long as your passion is in creating something new and different – feel free to join us – maybe someone with a great idea is right now looking for you!
