Start-up Kick Off Training: Make your own entrepreneurship journey

University of Naples Federico II and Sorbonne University are hosting a two-week training called Start-up kick off (Paris E-Lab) open for students, researchers and entrepreneurs alike.

This training aims to help participants to develop their own entrepreneurship project and turn into a pre acceleration/incubation startup. Participants will have the opportunity to choose one or both modules.

Module 1: How to drive your idea into a real concept

Sorbonne university (Campus UPMC) October 28-31st 2019

Do you have a business idea in mind? Or maybe you have a startup project, but you are unsure about the viability? If so, this training is made for you. The programme is designed for students in bachelor, Master’s or Phd degree programmes, but also for researchers who have an innovation/solution idea to help and improve the life of citizens in Europe. This module is not only focused on healthcare, it’s also concerned with any topics that indirectly involve healthy living (environment, food or digital). For four days you will have access to multiples of workshops and conferences, and most important, be guided by the two biggest incubators which are School lab and Deep tech founders. At the end of the first module, you will be able to define your value proposition and target, and create a prototype.

Module 2: How to validate and communicate your project

University of Naples Federico II (Monte S. Angelo Campus), November 18-22nd 2019

You have the technology but you still don’t know exactly how to translate it into a successful business? Are you excited to develop your business to the next level? The Startup kick-off program in Naples offers an intensive training week to support you in becoming more effective as an entrepreneur. The program is based on the EIT Health E-Lab concept, and is based upon a combination of practical workshops, training sessions, seminars, challenges and networking events. During the week you will have the opportunity to take part into the EIT Health Hackathon of the University of Naples Federico II, and to be connected to local start-up ecosystem players.
