Here we will post entries on what we are doing.

 

First startup workshop

We attended the first workshop today that was organized by the hub. The program for today was to introduce the different teams in the hub with each other and facilitate a start for each startup. The output of the workshop was some goals both for us as entrepreneurs and our project. We also defines ourselves in terms of, strengths, challenges, skills and skills needed. Based on this we, together with consultants at the hub, defined goals described in the following paragraph. They will most likely be updated with time. We also did a personality test in relation to doing a startup.

Final lesson

We also talked about looking at the grand scale of the company, all the dreams and visions. But before this can be accomplished we have to define concrete small scale tasks.
