The Five Step Strategy for Lucerne University

We have encountered three priorities that we will develop over the coming semesters to promote Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Lucerne University.

Venture Capital Movement

We are building a Venture Capital Fund that helps students to get funding for their idea. At the same time, the get the chance to experience and learn about Lean Startup while invest the won budget during a startup course at University.

The Plan To Action:

1. Refine / Polish the idea and gain insights about the expectations of the target group

2. Setup a communication strategy with Website and Flyers to validate the interest and inform stakeholders

3. Get in touch with faculty to discuss options of development and to gain the funding needed

4. Recruit the needed commitee for the VC Fund

5. Contact sponsors for collaboration

Startup Ecosystem Map Switzerand

We help students and entrepreneurs in Switzerland to find the resources within our ecosystem by providing them with a map that not only shows all the assets, but also puts them in a chronological relevance. What does the Swiss startup ecosystem offer in terms of incubation? What in terms of funding? Where can you go to to get your funding? 

The Plan To Action:

1. Research on current offerings

2. Find the assets that would be relevant for the Ecosystem Map

3. Build MVP / Mockup for the map with easy tools

4. Gain attention from the stakeholders

5. What is the business model? How do we assure the right data?

The Student Project Platform

We are building a platform that helps students to find projects for their final thesis on master and bachelor (undergraduate / graduate) level. 

The Plan To Action:

1. Get support from the board of directors from our campus

2. Find a easy way to integrate the platform into our current university ecosystem

3. Do a first test run for projects in February 2019

4. Track the results and get more funding for next iteration
