Turbiini 10-Week Sprint is aimed at individuals (searching for a team), entrepreneurs and students who are looking for an opportunity to make their ideas happen, turn them into a venture or get exposed to hands-on design, business or developer activities as a team member.
Throughout the intensive program in autumn 2017, you will learn how to apply systematic methods to possibly build a repeatable and scalable business. In addition you will grasp Evidence-Based Entrepreneurship approaches and principles.
FOR INDIVIDUALS AND ENTREPRENEURS:
As a participant, you can benefit in the following ways. Firstly, build up a new Prestartup Project based on your idea and gather a team around it. Secondly, if you don’t want to take the full ownership, but you want to be part of a core team bringing your expertise into it, you can join an existing team, that already has a business idea.
As a student, you can benefit in various ways. Firstly, you can earn credits from the Entrepreneurship or Elective course (10 ECT). Secondly, it is possible to write your thesis during the program when you base thesis on a Prestartup Project (15 ECT). Lastly, if other aforementioned options have been completed, you can get great work-life experience while building a startup as a founder or team member (15 ECT / 3 months).
The Prestartup Program is an accelerator platform of Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences organised by Turbiini Accelerator and it is meant to serve all students regardless of their university background and any entrepreneurial individual or teams.
