HSE Startup Community
Many people learn from their own mistakes and experiences. But there is a better way - to learn from the mistakes of others and use some insights from well-experienced professionals. Therefore, the HSE Business Incubator is launching the HSE Startup Community - a community of HSE students and staff who are interested in entrepreneurship and mutual assistance in the development of their projects.
Participants will be able to turn their ideas into a working business or finalize a startup at any stage with the help of master classes from recognized experts and, of course, a knowledge base for launching their startup. It's free and online. All this will save you a huge amount of time and effort when you work on your own project.
What will participation in the community give to you?
In addition to invaluable experience, everyday progress and new useful acquaintances, you will find:
We asked Alexey Nitsa, the manager of this project, several questions about HSE Startup Community several questions.
There is HSE Business Incubator in HSE, but there is no special online platform for all programmes where HSE students and staff could find like-minded people for actualizing new business projects. So, we decided to organize HSE Startup Community to create a community interested in developing in business sphere.
It is crucial that at least one member of a group should be from Higher School of Economics. It can be a student or a professor or any HSE staff member. For me, as a curator, it is essential that future participants already have an idea of a project and a motivation to turn it into the reality. That is already enough to join our community.
The main quality we are looking for in future candidates is a high motivation and driving force to launch your own startup. Those who are most passionate about the idea are the first to succeed. Experience is not important, because the main point is that a participant wants to move forward, not be afraid of trying new things, improve business skills and find people in spirit.
