Startupoprogrammet Uminova Innovation

The Startup Program

The Startup Program is an intensive, knowledge-packed crash course on how to develop an innovative business idea into a successful company.

Who do we seek? People with a clever idea that solves a problem in a new way, and have the will and drive to explore its potential. During three months and six workshops, we will give you the methods and tools to help you test your business idea on potential customers, and important skills like how to sell, create the right price model, build a sustainable business, build your team and much more.

We will push you to operate out of your comfort zone and reach the next level. We will inspire you to be creative and think big picture and, of course, support you based on our vast experience and knowhow. We will offer opportunities like valuable networking and exposure. It’s up to you to make the most of them.

The goal is to make you and your idea incubator ready. Our incubator is reserved for the best and the hardest working entrepreneurs and there they get the full range of our expertise in business development and entrepreneurship.

The program is free of charge and the sessions will be held in English.

Next chance to apply is in summer 2020!
