    Did everyone who wanted to re-submit their application again after this session? The placeholder that many of you did with me in the session unfortunately did not save (see previous comment) and therefore I want to make sure everyone submitted their application again: Login and check your application.

    Last Tuesday, we had this idea pitch - and for some you it struggled to come up with a business idea, spontaneously. I think that there is something like an "idea muscle" - and that we can train that muscle - as we train other muscles of our body.

    You might like to participate in our experiment "A Business Idea A Day"

    I'd like to invite you to ad and share your ideas with us - and become an idea machine!

    Hi Everyone,

    Jan and I are just speaking with Adeo Ressi. Applications will actually be accepted on a first come first serve basis, conditional on the fact that your application hits the quality benchmark the Founder Institute expects. Once the class is full, the class is full.

    Therefore I urge you to put in your full aplication ASAP. Answer the questions in full and accurately. Then you will be invited to take the social science admissions test.

    Apply Here:

    Good Luck!!!

    To everyone who applied last night with the "placeholder" on my laptop. If you did not receive an email yet from Founder Institute (which I think is the case for many of you), then I need to ask you to apply again. The reason is that the person who applied before you on my laptop was then automatically logged in and unfortunately I did not "log out" before adding the next persons details. Therefore the next persons details were not saved. So please enter your info again and make sure you receive a confirmation email so you can edit the application. At least you know how to do it now :-)
    Try to do it today and then edit your application as best you can over the next few days. Remember, you are essentially pitching yourself to Founder Institute :-)

    Apply: E-mail me with any issues:

    Great event! Thanks to the organizers!
    To me really advantageous: the hands-on session on elevator pitches.

      There is no tram no more, the tracks are currently being renewed. Best is to go to Ostbahnhof, then walk to the big scout24 building.

    Hi Everyone! Really looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow. It should be a great session and everyone should get a good insight into pitching and the business ideas of others. Applications will be open for the Founder Institute tomorrow so you can be among some of the first to apply and avoid the EUR50 cost for the social science test. At the end of the session, I can show you how to apply in a few minutes and edit your application later :-) See you there!
