Get ready to become an entrepreneur with Business Concept 2024


USI Startup Centre

17 January 2024

From now till 25 February 2024, you can apply for the next edition of Business Concept, the Innosuisse entrepreneurship course organised by USI and SUPSI, featuring 1 boot camp and 10 evening lessons that will take place from 5 March to 21 May 2024. 

The training programme, free of charge and in English, provides participants with theoretical concepts required for setting up a startup, notions for the preparation of a business model and an effective pitch for the different actors of the entrepreneurial ecosystem. 

Business Concept combines theory with practical exercises: participants will be divided into groups, each of which will work on an entrepreneurial project proposed by a group member. Here is what one of the course alumni says:

"Business Concept marked the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey. An incredible experience that gave me the basic tools to turn my idea into a business.” - Fabio Amicarelli, PhD candidate at the Academy of Architecture, USI and Co-founder of Foldcast, winner of Boldbain Startup Challenge 2023
