Cockpit Accelerator Program – Prepare for Business Takeoff

Do you dream of becoming an entrepreneur but don’t know how to get started? This summer KuopioES organizes an accelerator program for teams that want to take their idea to the next level with the help of business professionals.

Cockpit is a four-week mentoring program aimed to give you the best possible start for launching your business. The program takes place 19.6.-19.7.2017, and during this time you will get free mentoring and advice tailored for your needs. You will also get access to free office space at Kuopio campus.

The approach of the program is very hands-on and each week covers a new theme. Together with our professional coaches you will tackle areas like team dynamics, product development, marketing and service design. You will also get help developing your revenue model and practice pitching your idea to investors.

What’s the catch, you ask? There is none. In fact we’ll even throw in an opportunity to win 3000 euros! At the end of the program you will pitch your idea to a jury of seasoned business professionals, and the winning team will receive funding for developing their business.

Applications are open until the end of May and up to five teams will be selected to join the program.

So free mentoring and office space, support of a like-minded community and the possibility to win some much-needed funding – really, what’s there to think about.
