Vienna University (WU) is conducting the first Intensive Programme Course of BUILDs during the months of January and February 2021.
The Intensive Course is organized in the context of the development of two ongoing WU Courses (‘Sustainability Challenge‘ and ‘Sustainable Entrepreneurship’) that are taught during October 2020 and March 2021, and it aims at setting businesses related to enhancing cities’ sustainability and resilience.
The Intensive Course of BUILDs will be conducted during January and February 2021 and includes lectures on the core elements of sustainable entrepreneurship, customer segments, business plan writing, finances, pitch training, networking, as well as close mentoring from the biology and design disciplines. In addition, the Course integrates peer-to-peer sessions where the different teams support each other in their joint ambitions to bring their sustainable (business) ideas to life and to contribute to sustainable development.
The objective of the WU Intensive Course is to bring together BUILDs consortium industries and trainers with the objective of equipping the students (a total of 15 start-ups teams) with needed knowledge and competencies to put their sustainable (business) ideas successfully into practice.
