We are happy to invite you to participate in a joint team with HPI students. Each team needs at least one teammate from HPI to participate in the Business Plan Competition. On 25 April 2018 we offer you the unique opportunity to find this teammate at our “Ideation & Team-matching workshop”.
What we offer:
During this workshop you will:
a) Find your co-founders to build a successful team
b) Learn how to go from a mere business idea to an actionable business plan
c) Pitch in front of an investment team to practice for the HPI Business Plan Competition
You will be interacting and working with other passionate students from HPI, experienced coaches and founders providing guidance.
To unwind and mingle after an eventful afternoon we will provide food & beverages.
Please note: Your participation in the HPI Business Plan Competition is independent from the participation at this workshop. However, participation at the BPC requires at least one team member to be from the HPI. This workshop is the ideal opportunity to find that special someone!
