Open Innovation Cycle by Starthaus

The Open Innovation Cycle is a programme for digital, scalable ideas. The three-month cycle helps you to create validated and marketable value propositions and business models from your ideas or already existing business models - it doesn't matter whether you’re just starting with an idea or are already in the pre-seed phase!  And best of all: your coaches were all start-ups once!

Nobody is left alone! In a group of up to five other start-ups, you will use your new skills to advance your project. You discuss your projects and procedures together in cycles, thus tapping into the swarm intelligence.

Suitable or not?

If you are unsure whether your project is already or still suitable for the programme, simply contact us. Our experience shows that most projects can be supported by our programme - regardless of their maturity.

“As a technical start-up team, it makes sense to gain insights in the business world and to receive structured coaching. We also hope that the OIC will give us an opportunity to attract the capital we still need.”

Team FiwiAn about why they took part in the OIC.

“Even when you think you’ve got a good basis, you can still “polish” it up with the OIC. It offers complete newcomers the chance to take the right steps from the very beginning so you don’t set off in the wrong direction.”

Team LEVITY on why other start-ups or idea developers should take part in the OIC
