JointForces – With Joint Forces to Success

Get support for your project from a community of innovators and entrepreneurs of TU and WU. Present either your start-up or your first idea in a relaxed setting and without pressure. At Joint Forces you have the opportunity to attract the attention of interested co-founders, employees and mentors. The feedback from the community can provide the decisive impulse for the next step.

The event in 3 acts

3 START-UPS – Already founded start-ups, which have provided their proof-of-concept, are pitching and looking for employees, valuable contacts or investors.

3 PROJECTS – Without guidelines or specifications, future founders are presenting their project ideas to get some feedback and perhaps even get to know future co-founders.

3 SHOUT-OUTS – Everyone has the chance to make a brief request, an event announcement or whatever. No feedback, no questions – who wants to know more, has to ask for details during the networking afterwards.

About the workshop

This workshop will offer you a holistic understanding of the whole process: from the application stage to successfully finishing a PreSeed-Project. You will learn what aws considers ‘innovative’ and ‘high-tech’, what should be included in your application (structural information, team, terms, timetables, business model, etc.) and what are the follow-up steps providing you have a successful application.For the unanswered questions, we reserved time for a Q&A session at the end of the workshop.
