Pre-Seed Workshop 2013

If you are asking yourself these questions, the Pre-Seed Workshop is for you. The PSW is for high-tech ideas that think they may want to become start-up companies. If you have a recently patented technology that may have commercial potential, and are looking for business input, then the PSW can help you find answers to these and other questions.

The PSW is an intense, two and a half day workshop and has proven to be a fast, efficient way to:

  • vet projects and business ideas
  • launch pre-seed stage companies
  • increase the entrepreneurial activity within a community

It is NOT a lecture series! During the workshop participants simulate a “real” start-up company by collaborating with a hand-picked team with diverse expertise in technology, business, finance and law. Through 9 fast-paced modules you will answer 20 key questions about your idea. You will present your results to a panel of experts who will provide feedback on your proposed business case.

To be considered to participate, you must be available on the first evening from 5-8 pm and the two full following Fridays (November dates to be determined for 2014). We can only accept a maximum of 6 teams, so apply soon! We encourage applications from women and any NCCR related technology champions, but it is open to high-tech entrepreneurs throughout the Arc Lémanique.

Registration is now closed.
