As part of the Cogsteps project, we are excited to announce that applications for our first live startup education programme are now officially open! Our "Startup 101 bootcamp" will be an intensive five day education for researchers who would like to test the business potential of their projects and learn about the startup fundamentals. It will be held in Zagreb, Croatia from 15 to 19 January 2022, and all living costs (accommodation + meals) are covered. Take this opportunity to experience Croatian’s capital city, learn almost everything that every early-stage startup founder should know, improve your idea and expand your business network.


Applications are open until the 24th of December [2] for all employees from the University of Zagreb, University of Ljubljana, Graz University of Technology, and Know-Center. Switch to the online registration form.

Startup 101 bootcamp

During this five days long education and training program, participants will learn about

  • startup terminology,
  • important stakeholders in the startup ecosystem like incubators and VCs,
  • Lean Startup and Design Thinking methodology,
  • why storytelling is important,
  • how to create a perfect pitch deck,
  • where to find the money for your spin-off and
  • how to manage the Intellectual Property (IP).

They will also be able to test their ideas and the commercial value of their innovations, getting answers to many questions every researcher or scientist has when it comes to research commercialization and starting their own spin-off.

More details on the event can be found on the "Startup 101 bootcamp" website.
