Planning

After the pre-screening in phase 1, the second phase with workshops I took place coached by Hans Le Fever and Mat Kohnen. The teams learned how to analyze customer value propositions and how to identify key risks and assumptions. In addition to the brainstorm and coaching sessions, experienced entrepreneur, Tol Trimborn (Gadeta, Arcarios, Biosquare), shared his story with value ‘tips and trick’.

Workshops II is organized in May. This final phase, the true hands-on stage, consists of two 3-day workshop sessions and a venture plan evaluation. The teams will work on producing a Venture Plan. During these workshops seasoned entrepreneurs and venture capitalists are involved, providing expert input and hands-on coaching on specific topics.

Finals are scheduled for June 3rd, when teams are delivering their ultimate pitch and our jury will choose the winner of the Venture Challenge Award Spring 2016.
