Technology Entrepreneurship Lab (WI000813)


Technology Entrepreneurship Lab (E-Lab) is a hands-on, three-month education program where students learn how to guide new entrepreneurial teams. Every semester we take on 25 students from all faculties who are passionate about entrepreneurship as well as guiding teams on their entrepreneurial journey. Our learn-by-doing education unfolds in two phases: First, you will aquire and improve coaching skills during our three-day workshop. Second, you will guide up to three entrepreneurial teams from Business Plan Basic Seminar or Tech Challenge throughout the semester.

The program is in English and includes interactive coaching education, real-life coaching practice, and supervision by a professional coach and trainer. E-Lab is a perfect opportunity if you want to develop your skills as a techTALENTS Coach and help teams take on their entrepreneurial challenges. Please, be aware that E-Lab is a high commitment program which needs your full attention, reliability, and continuous communication.
