Summary: Several business representatives (participants) meet at the business park Enterpriseville. Their goal is to discover new business opportunities and obtain the funding needed to implement them.
Description: At Enterpriseville there are several companies, including a bank, a venture capital firm, a café and a staffing company. There is also a library with helpful books, documents, databases and internet access. Each company has challenges to be solved and certain resources at their disposal.
By interacting with the companies, the participants can identify their needs and resources and thus discover a new opportunity. The participants then work in groups to develop a solution for the company that allows them to take advantage of the opportunity. They can do research at the library or purchase consultancy services from the staffing company to help them. Next, the participants turn the solution into a business plan or business case. Again, support is available through the library or staffing company.
The group can now pitch their solution to the company they interacted with. If they gain support for their solution, they must then secure funding. This is done by pitching their business case or business plan to the venture capital firm or the bank.
