RBS4Entrepreneurship: meet the teams and the evaluation committee of the second edition of the program
What is the RBS4Entrepreneurship program?
Through RBS4Entrepreneurship Rome Business School wanted to give a structured path to those with an interest in the startup world and entrepreneurship. Students are invited to participate to talks and workshops, meet successful startuppers, and acquire the necessary tools to launch a startup: from market analysis to creating a pitch and finding investors.
The program helps students find a team or an idea to work on, so they can have a truly hands-on experience. Teams can be composed of students, alumni and external collaborators.
All teams can then submit their projects, out of all submissions, only 10 projects make it to the selection day, and out of the 10, 5 winning teams will join the RBS Incubation Program where, thanks to the aid of tailored coaching, exclusive meetings with entrepreneurs and specific workshops, they will get their idea to the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) stage. At the end of the incubation program a money prize to be spent on services, is given to the team to further expand their idea.
When is the selection day 2022?
10 teams will pitch their idea to an evaluation committee. The event will happen February, Friday the 11th 2022, at 14.30.
