Technology Entrepreneurship Lab

Technology Entrepreneurship Lab (E-Lab) is a hands-on, three-month education program where students learn how to guide new entrepreneurial teams. Every semester we take on up to 40 students from all faculties who are passionate about entrepreneurship as well as guiding teams on their entrepreneurial journey. Our learn-by-doing education unfolds in two phases: First, you will acquire and improve coaching skills during our two-day FULL-TIME kickoff, and consecutive deep dive workshops. Second, you will guide up to three entrepreneurial teams from Business Plan Basic Seminar, Tech Challenge, or M-Lab throughout the semester.
