Launchpad is a meeting place for students interested in entrepreneurship. It includes an office space for working on their own ideas, meeting with other entrepreneurs and support from Chalmers Ventures business coaches.
Yesterday was launch day for Chalmers Ventures, the new subsidiary for Chalmers University of Technology. Seven entrepreneurs with a connection to Chalmers were at the same time introduced as ambassadors, to be possible mentors and inspirers to young startups in Gothenburg.
Today Chalmers Ventures introduces itself with its new name for the first time, and launches its processes and offers for entrepreneurs in the Gotheburg region. Anyone is welcome to develop their own idea or work with somebody elses, within Chalmers Ventures.
In the beginning of June, the current 10 ventures in our incubator pitched their business cases in front of a live audience. The entrepreneurs (all graduating students at Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship) had 5 minutes each to convince the audience about how their business idea will reach the market.
