From initial idea to start-up company

Do you have a good idea, and want to turn it into your own start-up? Do you want to start your own company, and are looking for partners with the right idea?

The OWL University of Applied Sciences and Arts has competent contacts who can help guide you through the process. To help you move from an initial idea to your own start-up, you need a well-developed business concept and competent partners; meeting with experts and thorough research can also help you on your way.
