UIC will together with Uppsala University Innovation (UUI) help you to develop your business 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. 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 Startup Weekend 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.

The Business Startup Weekend will be held in English and is free of charge. It will be run by Lars Dahlbom and Ulrika Gunnarsson, business developers at UIC and UUI.

For whom?
This is for people/teams with a unique and scalable business idea – and who are not able to take part of UIC’s daytime business development programs. Your business idea can be within any field. It is just important that you have the drive to realise your idea.

28-29 January at 9:00 – 18:00. Lunch and coffee/tea will be served.

Uppsala Innovation Centre, Uppsala Science Park, Dag Hammarskjölds väg 10 B, Uppsala

How do I apply?
Drop us an email on info@uic.se with a short description about you, your team (if you have one) and your business idea. Write ”Startup Weekend” in the subject line! Deadline 23 January.

We have confidentiality.
