What do you get in the Proof Programme?
When you have applied to the Proof Programme and been accepted at the kick-off meeting, you are free to use all of our facilities and offers; office space, lawyer- and accounting services and you can join our workshops.
From experience, the high-quality value your startup gains, is found in the network with the other startups at the office – the more time you spend at CSE, the more you’ll get out of it. You can be a part of the CSE community as long as you’re a student (and up to 1 year after graduation)!
Every Wednesday we gather for coffee at 13:00 (1 p.m.) and share updates on progress, successes and learnings. This is a great chance to get to know the other teams and even pitch yourself when you’re ready!
The incubation journey is built into different phases: proof of idea, proof of concept and proof of business.
The phases of incubation
Proof of Idea
At CSE, we can support you in validating your idea in an early stage and help you find out what are the needs for your product or service and how to test that.
In this stage it’s important to identify users and customers, investigate your target market and do a lot of research. For example we help you answer these questions:
Proof of Concept
The focus of the Proof of Concept phase is to test the feasibility of your idea and to prove that your concept is viable in addition to building and testing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) with potential customers and partners. In meetings with a business developer, you set goals for your next steps forward and get support in prioritise your time and recourses.
Proof of Business
If you have proven your concept, talked to potential customers about your product or service and seen some traction it’s time to focus on turning the concept into a business.
At CSE, you are given the chance to grow your business and form a solid network and we encourage you to share your issues, problems, achievements and failures with the other teams. The more open you are with your relations, contacts and ideas, the more openness and support you will receive from your peers within the ecosystem.
