    Welcome to the Entrepreneurial Experience, a new course starting in January 2016.

    As an entrepreneur you have two main tasks:

    1. Discover what your customers and users value and then create that value for them.
    2. Set up and run a small organization to achieve goal number 1.
    Most entrepreneurial courses treat these two as separate things but the Entrepreneurial Experience course will combine these two aspects.

    In the course you will become part of a team that - in parallel - works on creating value for customers and manages the team as if it was a small company.

    The course replaces the Venture Formation and Lean Launchpad courses. It also replaces alto Service Camp as the Business Development Lab (BDL) course for EIT students.


    The Entrepreneurial Experience course is open to all Aalto Master's level students. It is also part of the AVP Minor.

    The course is open for both individual students as well as students teams. If you have your own entrepreneurial idea you can work on that is the course project. If you do not have an idea, then you will come up with a sound business idea to pursue at the start of the course and then work on that.


    Register for the course via Oodi. Registration end on Jan 11, 2016.

    Max number of students: 50

    Registration priority order:
