Skylab Ignite

Become a customer-driven 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!

DTU Skylab Ignite is a 10 week early stage startup acceleration program suited for students and researchers. The program consists of individual 1:1 team sessions with professional coaches, network building workshops with all participants together, and a final pitching event with 50.000 DKK in prizes. There is a new round each semester, and each batch has 10 top motivated high tech (pre)startups.

 

We have a heavy focus on getting the participants to really interact with potential customers and parters, meanwhile building a stronger team. 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!
