The Financing my Business Idea workshop is structured into four sessions:

  2. Presenting in details the EXIST program
  3. Evaluating business models of the participants

The first two session will implement more as a lecture to provide the necessary information. In the third session, we will show successful business models which could obtain funding by EXIST and assess the business models of the participants in individual coaching sessions.

Finally, the workshop will provide a guidance for developing a short proposal to verify the option of EXIST program funding.

Participants should provide a Business Model based on an own business idea
