Skylab Ignite

Become a customer-oriented startup team in 10 weeks
Take part in a strong community of startups, expand your entrepreneurial mindset, build your business case, and strengthen your team!

We select 10 startup teams to participate in the 10 week program, which consists of individual 1:1 team coaching sessions and workshops with all participants together.


Each team will have at least three 1:1 coaching sessions where we use the Ignite Dialogue Tool to kick off the process. We can help you structure your process, connect with the startup ecosystem, and give you inputs to understand more aspects about starting up a venture, your business case, and your assumptions.


Through the eight workshops you will meet and interact with the other participating startups and dive into core startup related topics – each workshop creates input for one slide in your pitch deck or a tool from the toolbox. Some events are mixed with the Ignite Programs at our partners KEA (Copenhagen) and VentureLab (Lund University, Sweden) so you get even broader network and inputs.

After completing the program, you will have a more solid business case, a convincing pitch, a better team, and strong relations in the entrepreneurial community!


Time Consumption
The total number of hours you will spend at events and sessions are ~45 hours during the 10 weeks. On top of this, there is preparation in between – time you will need to spend no matter what if you are going to start a venture. All events and sessions are mandatory to participate in unless there is good reason to cancel.
