360° INNOVATION OVERVIEW

You get introduced to the right players and visit vibrant locations with us. We help you to build a network to start working from by getting in touch with different founders & innovators. Plus, we take you to the heart of the innovation scene and discover co-working spaces, incubators, and innovation labs of larger corporations during our weekly classes.

 
 

STARTUP TOOLS

Innovative techniques are as much an integral part of the training course as the entrepreneurial tools are. You learn about lean and agile management and get to know the design thinking approach. Experts from the practical sphere run the sessions, since you'll want to learn from people who know what they are talking about.
