B-Space, the Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) Business Incubator has opened applications for its incubation programme (INK) until 12 January 2022. Teams consisting of at least one RSU student, employee or graduate who have a business idea are invited to participate in the programme in order to develop their idea further, conduct market research and develop a product or service over four months.

INK provides practical experience in building a business, which can later be used to create a fast-growing company. The incubator’s environment, people, managers, and mentors help participants get in the right headspace to build their own business. B-Space is the right place to develop as an entrepreneur, both if you already have a finished product or just an idea.

  • Defining a business idea, possible business model and team;
  • Market analysis, collaboration between mentor and team, creating a product or service sketch;
  • Creating the company's financial and legal structure, developing pitching skills in preparation for demo day.

Teams will be provided with all the resources available at B-Space, such as a co-working space, MakerSpace equipment, mentor support etc.

The most important annual event for each incubator is the beginning of incubation process. We are very excited to see the new applications that will grow and develop together. After creating a business idea within the pre-incubation (PINK) the next step is to test, develop and implement the idea. We invite both those future entrepreneurs who we have already worked with in the PINK programme as well as others who are ready to develop their ideas in a team to the INK programme. Interdisciplinary teams, where each participant has their own strengths and diverse talents, are an essential resource to make ideas come to fruition. Last year's experience shows that incubation helps your ideas reach the next level and you can gain important skills in practice, both for yourself and for the whole team. During the INK programme, you will have the opportunity to explore the market where you plan to implement your idea, work with outstanding mentors in your industry, prototype and test the product or service with the end user, as well as learn about other start-ups, discover presentation tricks and many other useful, interesting things. B-Space is looking forward to your applications!
