Who should attend the Startup Development Academy ?

The syllabus will benefit first-time founders of pre-seed /early seed startups, entrepreneurship students and everyone who’s looking for a comprehensive startup development playbook. Incubation managers and technology transfer experts are also welcome as spin-offs and scientific startups are also considered in each topic.

How does this format differ from other free and paid content on the internet ?

The Startup Development Academy is an interactive learning experience merging training, consulting insights and efficient problem-solving in each topic. You can accelerate your project with us while attending our regular sessions and focused 1:1s, which are part of the premium program. Due to the limited cohort capacity, the lecturers will be able to attend to your questions as well as address specifics of your projects.

What if I can’t attend the live session(s) ?

Participating live allows for a better experience as you can interact with your lecturers and peers. However, after every session, a full recording will be sent to your email address and our coordinator will be ready to help you have your questions answered by the lecturer.
