Success of Startup Bürze

„We faced different challenges compared to other groups because we had already developed our product based on the innovation competition without thinking about the potential market or the need. We, therefore, had to take a step back and consider whether our product made sense at all. In addition, we had little knowledge of business and markets, many terms were new to us. However, having seen it through to the end, the most important thing we learned is: “Just try it out”. We just kept going and learned a lot. In the end, the program proved a huge success for our team and product.“

Questions? Answers!

Do I already have to have an idea?

Not at all! You can join someone who has an idea, and form an interdisciplinary team of 3-4 students. We’ll help with that at the beginning of the course.

Can I do this course on my own?

Nope! You need to form an interdisciplinary team of 3-4 students. We’ll help with that at the beginning of the course.

Will I learn how to write a business plan?

Yes, of course! But keep in mind that the business plan is only the last step of a long journey, and that we focus way more on hands-on and real-life experiences than theory.
