HSE University Is Creating a Community of Aspiring Entrepreneurs Among Students and Staff

HSE University Is Creating a Community of Aspiring Entrepreneurs Among Students and Staff

© HSE University

The HSE Business Incubator has launched the HSE Startup Community to bring together HSE students and staff interested in entrepreneurship, and cooperation in developing their own projects. Participation in the community is free.

HSE Startup Community is a programme for developing the ideas and projects of HSE students and staff in a community format. Participants will be able to turn their ideas into a working business or develop a startup at each stage of the process with the help of master classes from renowned experts, consulting, networking and, of course, access to the essential knowledge and skills for launching a startup. You can start participating any time; active team work has already started.

Alexey Nitsa, HSE Startup Community Curator, HSE Business Incubator

Any initiative emerging from HSE University should be encouraged. To do this, we are creating an internal community that will be a single entry point for entrepreneurship at HSE University. Community members will gain basic knowledge enabling them to launch their project and bring it to the point where they can apply for specialized acceleration programmes and competitions at HSE University. We offer networking within the community, an opportunity to find your team members, and progress tracking, allowing each team to move forward at its own pace.

To join HSE Startup Community, you should have at least a project idea, and one of the team members must be either a student or HSE staff member.

You can learn more about the programme and apply here.
