Lean Startup Sprint

Starting your own business is messy. Especially in the early days, when the path is unclear and so many things seem to be important. When you’re right at the start, this program is for you.

Starting your own business is messy. Especially in the early days, when the path is unclear and so many things seem to be important. When you’re right at the start, this program is for you.

Lean Startup Sprint is a 2-week program for you to develop your startup idea. You will be meeting a startup coach and receiving individual recommendations for the next steps to work on.

Details

Develop your startup idea into a proof-of-concept. During 2 weeks, we help you to build a prototype, collect evidence and draft your business model.

This 2-week sprint is for all new startups, regardless of their development stage. Get to know Startup Incubator Berlin at Siemensstadt, and we’ll get to know you a bit better, too.

What if I don’t have a prototype or product yet?

Perfect! We’ll help you build a prototype from your startup idea.

What if I don’t have first customers yet?

Not a problem. We’ll help you to identify those and build an “MVP”.

What if I’m alone for now?

Starting a startup is better as a team. Maybe you find a cofounder in those 2 weeks.

What you get:

  • 2 weeks co-working at Startup Incubator Berlin
  • Practical help and advice (no lectures) and a workbook
  • Startup coaching from experienced advisors and experts
  • Hands-on support with prototyping and testing (e.g. hardware, apps)
  • Integration into our startup community at Rohrdamm 88, Berlin-Siemensstadt
