Women Startup

Workshop weekend for women

  • A weekend with business development and entrepreneurship

Why join?

Do you have an idea which you would like to turn into a real business?
Did you discover a problem in your everyday life that you found a solution for?
Would you like to spend a weekend exploring whether your idea has a commercial potential and do you need help to go from idea or proof of concept to actual proof of business?
Now you have the chance to explore the questions you need answers for, in order to build a sustainable business. 

AU Incubator is hosting an intense workshop weekend in business development and entrepreneurship for women. Come join us 23 and 24 November 2019 at AU Incubator.
We have gathered a competent crowd of academic professionals and business partners who are ready to give advise and inspire you over the weekend.
During this workshop we will look into some of the typical challenges women face when starting a business, as well as help you develop your specific idea. The workshop combines presentations from experts, exercises and individual feedback to ensure a fruitful outcome.

And now you may think; “this is not for me, my idea is nowhere near commercialization, after all, I only wrote an academic paper on the topic, pitched it to a handful of random people and did some additional research online. What do I really know? ”- You probably know more than you think. No matter what your doubts may be, we would love to hear from you so we can help you decide if this weekend will create value for you and your project.

Requirements for participants:

You need to have an idea that you would like to test for a commercial purpose.

Please include the following in the application:

  • A short description of yourself and/or your team.
