Entrepreneur Education/Training

venture Lab: venturelab offers you custom-tailored training modules that will help you start your own company. venturelab training modules place particular emphasis on the project and on practice. The courses are free of charge but admission is selective: successful applicants must have an innovative business idea and demonstrate the will to carry out their project from start to finish.

The Hub (Zurich): We believe there is no shortage of good ideas to solve the issues of our time. But there is an acute lack of collaboration and support structures to help make them happen. The HUB was founded to address this need. We set out to create spaces that combine the best of a trusted community, innovation lab, business incubator and the comforts of home. Spaces with all the tools and trimmings needed to grow and develop innovative ventures for the world. But above all, spaces for meaningful encounters, exchange and inspiration, full of diverse people doing amazing things.

Startup Weekend: Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts. Dates vary depending on city. You can check the schedule here.
