Applications Now Open for Pre-Incubation Programme for Developing Business Ideas
Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) students and employees can apply for PINK, a pre-incubation programme organised by the RSU Business Incubator B-Space, until 21 September. The programme is intended for anyone who has ever had an idea to set up their own company. PINK is a 12-week open access course where participants will have the opportunity to take their first steps in creating a business idea and implement it.
‘We are waiting for open-minded students who are ready to invest time, work and effort to go through new emotions and gain experiences that will be useful in the future,’ so says B-Space mentor Kristaps Zaļais.
‘B-Space is a place where like-minded, cool and interesting people come together, so don't be afraid to join our PINK classes even if you don’t have a business idea or if you don’t have entrepreneurial skills.’
Get acquainted with the PINK programme and receive answers to any questions you might have at the PINK Info Hour on 9 September at 15:00. During the Info Hour, you will meet both B-Space mentor Kristaps Zaļais and graduates of the PINK and INK programmes and listen to their experiences with creating an idea and developing their first prototype.
PINK graduate Lelde Elizabete Kusiņa confirms that the programme provided valuable help as she started out in business, emphasising that you can participate even without having a business idea. ‘We gradually came up with a business idea during the classes and found a team with which we continued our journey in the INK programme. I can definitely say that this was a great experience, and I recommend that people participate and challenge themselves to implement ideas using expert advice.’
PINK classes are scheduled once a week (1.5 hours) for three months. During the course, participants will learn methods to come up with their own business idea, create teams for further developing their idea and get to acquainted with business plans and their role in further development. Participants can also learn presentation skills at PINK. To apply for the PINK programme, contact the incubator’s team and fill out the application form:
