The next edition of the VentureLab Weekend will take place on March , 2020, aiming to help aspiring entrepreneurs sound and test their ideas, develop business models and pitch to an international jury. It is organized in collaboration with VentureLab International.

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.
