The next edition of the VentureLab Weekend will take place in November 2023, aiming to help aspiring entrepreneurs sound and test their ideas, develop business models and pitch to an experienced jury.
The VentureLab Weekend is all about building your competencies and skills, and validate your business idea. During the 3-day event you will work on turning your idea into a working business concept. We support you with workshops and coaching by a group of experienced coaches. Furthermore, you will go out and get real world feedback on your idea. On Friday and Saturday you will learn to pitch your ideas and get valuable feedback. Sunday evening the teams will do a final pitch for a panel of expert entrepreneurs, business developers and potential investors. Check the schedule for more specific information.
