Prototype & Pitch
In the second semester, you have the opportunity to work out a business idea in an interdisciplinary team. You will learn how to develop your business idea step by step into a prototype and how to present it in a convincing pitch. After a three-day design thinking workshop, we will meet weekly during the semester.
In an intensive three-day workshop, you will go through the phases explore, create and evaluate of a design thinking process. This will help you grow as a team and shape your initial potential area of interest into a more concrete problem and initial business ideas. At the end of the workshop you will pitch in front of experts from the field and academia.
In multiple sessions by diverse experts you can deepen your knowledge on topics like business model canvas, entrepreneurial psychology, startup law and marketing.
In addition to the Q&A- sessions, there will be longer workshops to improve your pitching and negotiation skills.
The teams get the opportunity to receive personal coaching sessions by professors who are passionate about entrepreneurship and experts from the field.
There will be at least two interim presentations of the teams to selected experts and professors. At the end of the semester, the teams will present their business models to a wider audience in a final pitch event.
