What is the TAKE OFF programme?

If, after completing the LEAD-IN workshops, you wish to continue working on your idea/startup you have the option to sign up for our TAKE OFF programme. The programme addresses the challenges related to starting and developing a startup and gives you access to the AU Incubator.

As a part of the TAKE OFF programme, you can use the AU Incubator office space and get help and support from others at the AU Incubator who all know the challenges involved in starting a business. You or the team (if you sign up as a team) will have an adviser assigned to you and you will be paired up with other English speaking startups. It will also be possible for you to get advice from a lawyer and an accountant on a monthly basis. The purpose of this is to support you and help you develop your idea/startup.

Who can apply?

The TAKE OFF programme is for all English-speaking students at Aarhus University, who have completed the LEAD-IN workshops.  

What do you need to consider and how can you contribute?

Before you sign up to the TAKE OFF programme, you should consider whether you are ready to commit to monthly meetings with your AU Incubator adviser and fellow student entrepreneurs.

First and foremost, it is the users’ commitment and willingness to help each other which make the AU Incubator a great place to be and to build networks and share knowledge. If you become a part of the TAKE OFF programme, we expect that you contribute your commitment and knowledge to the programme.  

Criteria for admission

If you are an AU student for the rest of the semester in which you completed the LEAD-IN workshop you can sign up for the TAKE OFF programme.

The adviser will guide you through the signup process by the end of the workshops.

  • Access to shared office facilities where you can work on your idea or business
