UIC Startup

UIC Startup is a business development program for innovative business ideas that want to progress in their development. Here you get to work on developing your idea and ensuring it has the prerequisites for success. You get help in identifying and segmenting customers and then test your idea on those customers.

From idea to customer in three months

The UIC Startup program runs for three months with one meeting a week; between these occasions you are expected to work on your idea on your own.

In the program, you become acquainted with Lean Startup and the Customer development process, and we are supported by the Lean canvas tool to systematically test and develop your idea in the direction the market demands.

UIC Startup is free of charge

Guest lecturers from the business world

During the course of the program, we invite guest speakers who offer inspiration and valuable feedback.

At the end of the program you get to present yourself and your idea, together with other UIC companies, to an audience of investors, contacts and partners from the business world at the UIC Demo Day.

“Some of the insights I gained at UIC would have taken me at least five years to come up with on my own.”

– Andreas Dahlin, founder, Visualize Your Science
