We at Uppsala Innovation Centre (UIC), will help you to develop your idea and identify a viable business model. UIC is ranked as the world’s 10th best business incubator.
Prepare for a hands-on intensive workshop. All focus will be on helping you to develop your business idea. Our workshop method is based on Lean Startup principles. It is a well proven method, originally from Silicon Valley, for developing business ideas and risk minimizing the business model as fast as possible.
During the workshop you will get tools and methods to develop and validate your business idea. The bootcamp will give you a very good foundation to run a successful business. We will primarily focus on your business model – not the administrative part of the business – so there are no requirements to have a formal business/organisation number.
For whom? This is for refugees with an innovative business idea – with or without a team. Your business idea can be in any field, such as IT, retail, life science, clean tech or you name it. It is just important that you have the drive to realise your idea.
With innovative business idea we mean that you have a unique idea with a scalable business model.
23-24 April at 9:00 – 18:00. Lunch and coffee will be served.
