Pre-Jumpstarter Innovation Day

On December 17th we are organizing an introduction into the Jumpstarter program, so you can see for yourself if this is something for you or not. It’s run by one of our world class trainers, and you can ask all the questions you have about starting a company. We’ll start the day with looking at your business idea, and whether it could be the basis of a company. In case you don’t have an idea, there’s no need to worry; we’ll help you brainstorm on one. From there we look at the problem it solves, how customers might benefit from it and who might be your first customers. Towards the end of the day we will go through the questions in the application form of Jumpstarter, and help you apply if you want to join.
