Do you have an innovative idea and want to jumpstart your business?

EIT RawMaterials is offering a special mini programme to EIT RawMaterials Label programme students and graduates to help you submit a successful application to EIT Jumpstarter. Find out more information on the EIT Jumpstarter programme on the EIT 2020 Jumpstarter page.

Competition for places on EIT 2021 Jumpstarter will be fierce as the training, support, contacts and possible financial support are keenly sought after. That’s why EIT RawMaterials is offering extra support to EIT RawMaterials Label programme students and graduates to give you a better chance of submitting a successful application to EIT Jumpstarter.

Our Pre-Jumpstarter online mini programme consists of two workshops.

The first workshop will be an online Input Workshop where you will learn what is needed to make a strong application. We will take you through the questions on the application form, explain what is required and give you tips on what to include and what to avoid. This will include introducing some key concepts such as defining your product or service, identifying your customers and segmenting the market. You can take part on your own or with a team-mate.

You will then have several weeks to work on a draft application and submit it to us, at EIT RawMaterials.

The second workshop will be an online Feedback Workshop where we will look at your draft applications in more detail. We will offer a number of different dates for the online Feedback Workshop and each one will be for a smaller group of students and will be more interactive in approach. We will look at the draft applications, identify strengths and weaknesses, look at the thinking behind the application and the quality of the communication. You and your team-mate, if you have one, will leave this workshop with a much clearer idea of how to submit a successful application to EIT 2021 Jumpstarter.

You do not have to have a specific business idea in order to take part in the Pre-Jumpstarter Input Workshop but you will need one in order to submit a draft application and participate in the Pre-Jumpstarter Feedback Workshop.
