CHALLENGE 2

'PUT YOUR IDEA TO THE TEST'

SO, YOU HAVE A BRIGHT IDEA. WHAT'S NEXT?

In this challenge you will take the first steps towards a business plan. By offering four webinars we will help you to explore what it takes to turn your idea into reality, but also to find out if entrepreneurship is something for you. The webinars cover the topics entrepreneurship & organization, technical feasibility, market potential & revenue model, and making a strong pitch or presentation. With these webinars you will be able to write a general proposition about how you can turn your idea into an actual product, service or company. You will do this in a three page document. You will describe what the next steps will be to bring your idea to the market, which revenue model you can apply and how you are going to organize it. You will present your plan to the jury in a one minute pitch.

Challenge 2 is open from December 5, 2018 until January 18, 2019. The pitches for the jury will take place on Wednesday January 23, 2019. At this event five prizes of 500,- euro will be awarded.
