Participants from Austria and neighboring countries get the chance to develop commercialization strategies for their business ideas in the course of a 5-day programme. They receive input and mentoring from internationally successful entrepreneurs, profit from the experienced mentors of the CfEL Cambridge and at the same time experience the inspiring and spectacular scenery of the Tyrolean mountains. The extensive framework programme also provides the possibility of networking with regional, national, and international partners.
