Society/business UGCE VentureLab Weekend

VentureLab Weekend November 2022

The next edition of the VentureLab Weekend will take place in November 2022, aiming to help aspiring entrepreneurs sound and test their ideas, develop business models and pitch to an experienced jury. It is organized in collaboration with VentureLab North.


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 6 workshops and more than 6 hours of coaching by a group of experienced coaches. Furthermore, we organize an opportunity to test your idea and get input from a group of topic experts in such areas as IP management, Financing, Regulatory affairs and hospital procurement. On Friday and Saturday 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, business developers and potential investors. Check the schedule for the more specific information.
