FAU invites innovative talents from all EELISA partners to the first EELISA Entrepreneurship School at the Research Campus Waischenfeld in Germany from 16th to 20th October 2023. The EELISA Entrepreneurship School is a one-week program for EELISA students and staff from all disciplines who can apply either as an ideator with a first business idea or as a co-creator motivated to join another participant’s business idea during the program. All participants must be highly motivated to learn about developing a first business idea into a viable business model and the entrepreneurship toolkit necessary for founding their own startup. After their time together in Waischenfeld, all 25 participants will have taken the first steps on their entrepreneurship journey and will be in a much better position to start their own business.


At the EELISA Entrepreneurship School you will

  • form interdisciplinary teams with potential founders from all over Europe and work together to develop your business ideas,
  • meet experts and startups from FAU’s excellent innovation ecosystem,
  • learn about business model generation, value proposition design, prototyping, validation and much more,
  • develop your ideas with Lego Serious Play,
  • produce a video in a storytelling workshop,
  • be prepared to finally pitch your business model,
  • and receive EELISA credentials upon successful completion of the EELISA Entrepreneurship School.

Accommodation and subsistence costs are covered. Travel costs must be covered either by the participants’ respective EELISA institution or the participants themselves. In case of admission, please contact your local EELISA team to find out more about the possibilities of getting travel support.
