6. Train the Trainers: Business Knowledge BootCamp to High-Tech Entrepreneurs
The S2G2M2 Business Knowledge Bootcamp, where the TtT (Train the Trainer) belongs to, is aiming at bridging the gap by providing essential business knowledge to technology-focused start-up companies as an additional offer to increase their competitiveness. Further on by means of this workshop concept the participants should be sensitised on potential business development issues within their venture. Based upon the experiences of the first two trials with several space-oriented start-up in Bavaria and Netherlands the concept of the Business Knowledge Bootcamp should be disseminated among other ESA BICs and EBN members. This task is targeting at organising a workshop for all interested managers of incubation programmes, to provide them a generic scheme and scheduling proposal, to discuss the results as well as to exchange the experiences from the first 2 trials.
