VentureGarden starts with a targeted training phase that will introduce participants to the key elements of entrepreneurial action. The intensive program consists of 8 classes based on the Value Proposition Canvas, and focuses on market research and understanding customer/user needs (Problem-Solution Fit). Following the training phase, interested and committed participants receive support from experienced mentors to achieve specific goals.
Following the program's motto "Helping People Grow Ideas", we welcome all individuals passionate about entrepreneurship who have a strong sense of dedication. You can join VentureGarden regardless of your age, sex, origin, and background.
