Health VentureLab Weekend 2019

This edition of the VentureLab Weekend took place on November 15-17 , 2019, aiming to help aspiring entrepreneurs sound and test their ideas, develop business models and pitch to an international jury. It was organized in collaboration with VentureLab International.

The Health VentureLab Weekend is aimed at ideas in the health sector: healthy ageing, healthy living, biotech, medtech, and so on. For this edition we are looking for formed teams with existing ideas and a filled out Business Model Canvas. If you really want to participate but don’t have a team, we will help you find a team before the weekend.

The VentureLab Weekend is all about building - building your competences and skills, your future dream-team, and, of course, your business. During the 3 days of the event you will work on turning your idea into a working business concept. We support you with workshops and an international group of coaches and experts. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday you will learn to pitch your ideas and get valuable feedback. Sunday evening the teams will do a final pitch for a panel of expert entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and potential investors.

Join us only if you are ready to risk 52 hours now to become a great entrepreneur. Or, stay at home and let others learn to lead you.

What's the cost?

To participate in this event, we ask an amount of 40 Euro. These costs are mostly for your meals (2 lunches, 2 breakfasts, 3 dinners, refreshments and drinks at the end of each day - see the schedule on your left side!). Other costs for the classes, location, coaches and prizes are covered by the RUG Centre of Entrepreneurship.

If you are our alumni (previous VL weekends, IMIM and IPIM participants) you can participate for free.
