What is the STARTUP programme?

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

As a part of the STARTUP 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 a consultant 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 STARTUP programme is for all English-speaking students at Aarhus University, who have completed the STARTUP workshops.  

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

Before you sign up to the STARTUP programme, you should consider whether you are ready to commit to monthly meetings with your AU Incubator consultant 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 STARTUP 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 STARTUP workshop you can sign up for the STARTUP programme.

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