Students without a business idea, but with a strong desire to start their own business, are especially welcome.

B-space is a place where one can experiment and learn. Participants are also welcome to join other teams and develop their business ideas.
Participants in the PINK programme will have free access to common areas, which are equipped with everything necessary for work and leisure (wi-fi, office equipment, a kitchen and leisure areas). Students will be able to use the incubator’s resources, experiment and create prototypes of their ideas, meet like-minded people and build a team, consult with experts, receive mentor support and participate in networking and other events organised by the business incubator.
The aim of the RSU B-Space Business Incubator is to help and motivate RSU students and employees to develop new and innovative business ideas and entrepreneurship skills by providing support in the form of consultations, information and infrastructure. The functions of the business incubator are ensured by the RSU Technology Transfer Office.
