EIT Health VentureLab Weekend
EIT Health VentureLab Weekend

This edition of EIT Health VentureLab Weekend will take place on November 16 - 18, 2018, aiming to help aspiring entrepreneurs in healthcare, healthy ageing and medical business sound and test their ideas, develop business models and pitch to an international jury. It is organized in collaboration with UMCG, EIT Health, and VentureLab International.

The EIT Health VentureLab Weekend focuses on, but is not limited to the following topics:

  • healthy living (life-style, motivation and health self-management)
  • healthy ageing (healthy brain, mobility, longer active life)
  • improving healthcare systems (new medical systems, solutions & devices)

You may join even if you have no idea right now! We help you find a team that shares your interest and passion!

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 & EIT Health.

You can reduce the fee by participating in the research program: Help us understand how teams work and learn during the weekend in order to improve the future editions, and get 20 Euro off the price!

If you are our alumni (previous VL weekends or courses), or you are coming from one of the EIT Health partner universities, you can participate for free (we still hope you participate in the research program, though!).
