Having a good start-up idea is the first step. We help you with the ones that follow.
The Entrepreneuria Start-up Academy is a 8-week acceleration program during which 10 teams will work on their start-up ideas: mobile applications, internet portals, other services and ideas from the IT sector. The academy will provide them with a “start-up toolkit”: training, mentoring, co-working space and contact to potential investors during the DEMO DAY. For free!
THE START-UP ACADEMY 2013 kicked-off on 10.07.2013. The DEMO DAY is on 3.09.2013. MEET THE TEAMS – GET A TICKET – www.startupacademy-demoday.evenea.pl !
Mentors are a very important element of the Start-up Academy, as theywill be meeting the teams to discuss about their start-up ideas and give them feedback and guidance on which way to go. Experience matters. Here are some of the experienced entrepreneurs who will support the participants of the academy:
The objective of the teams participating in the Entrepreneuria Start-up Academy is to develop a working prototype of their product/ service and show it to a broader audience of fellow startup-ers and a selected pool of investors during the Demo Day (3.09.2013). Here is what everyone wants to see during the Demo Day presentations:
- 5' presentation of their concept and the environment (target, market size, product features, competition, business model)
- 3' presentation of their prototype (the app / internet portal must be online and the core features must be clickable)
- 10' questions and answers session (each team will receive questions from the audience and the potential investors)
This is your chance to get a first round of investment! Live up to the opportunity! Stand up to the challenge!
