thinking and entrepreneurship
CBS Startup aims at accelerating the impact of innovation and Entrepreneurship in the danish society and Denmark’s position on the global scene. CBS Startup supports initiatives based on entrepreneurial mindsets with close connection to Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship (CSE).
CSE Startup Hacks take place a couple of times a year. We bring together early-stage startups from universities across Copenhagen with business-savvy students from CBS to overcome the business challenges they face.
The event includes micro-workshops on business models and strategic planning, as well as dedicated hours for the teams to work on a specific challenge, with support from CSE’s Business Developers.
As the largest student startup event in Denmark, CBS Entrepreneurial Day showcases the important role of education in building the transformational leaders of tomorrow, placing Danish innovation on the world stage. This year, we will be taking our event online! Enjoy from the comfort of your own home via online streaming, take part in discussions during the event, and join our startup network to continue the networking.
Startup in Practice Internship with ECTS
Do an internship in a startup
If you wish to integrate your startup into your academic world – now is your chance! You can do an internship in your own CSE approved startup and earn ECTS points. Or if you have a CSE startup, either as currently part of the Proof Programme or a CSE alumni company, it is now possible to get interns from CBS who get ECTS points while getting hands on experience working in your startup.
The incubator Proof Programme is split into several phases, depending on where you are on your entrepreneurial journey. We have the expertise to support you based on where you are on your path towards a marketable product. We will support you in turning your idea into a business.
Whether you are at the idea, concept or business stage we welcome you to apply and look forward to following your journey! The only two requirements for applying are that you are a student or recent graduate and have a business idea!
Are you a step further along the journey and ready to scale your company? Read more about our acceleration programs below.
PROOF OF IDEA
Talking to people about your idea and getting initial feedback is the first step on the journey of taking your idea and turning it into a sustainable business.
Applying to the Proof Programme is the first step.
PROOF OF CONCEPT
You get 3 months to test your hypotheses, by developing proto/pretotypes and approaching potential customers to learn about their problems and if your product/service can fulfill their needs.
PROOF OF BUSINESS
If you have proven your concept, maybe also by seeing traction from first customers, we offer another 6 months stay at CSE where you can build your concept into a viable and sustainable business.
Not ready to apply for the full Proof Programme just yet? Stop by CSE for Open Wednesday, every Wednesday between 14-16h. to get feedback on your ideas and learn about your next step.
