Student IX – a place where great ideas are given room to grow



I have an idea, now what?

When you have an idea, get in touch via the contact form to arrange a meeting with one of our business developers. Your idea will be treated confidentially. We’ll guide you at the stage your idea is at, and it’s never too early to get in touch.

I don’t have my own idea but want to work in a start-up company, what do I do?

You don’t have to have an idea of your own to work in a startup. Get in touch with us and sign up for one of the courses we offer. You may also meet someone who needs you and your expertise in their company.

Is it possible to combine a startup company with studies?

It’s perfectly fine to combine studies and a start-up company, but it may require some structure. One tip is to talk to your lecturers and ask about the possibility of combining course assignments with work in the company.
