What are we doing?


 

Jump is a hop-on-hop-off pre-acceleration program for students divided into three modules. Each module lasts one semester and focuses on helping students develop different aspects, from exploring a problem to coming up with ideas and draft solutions until reaching a minimum viable product (MVP), a go-to-market strategy, and the final pitch. The full program is divided into three semesters, but you can hop on and off depending on how it is useful it is for the development of your business.

Fall Semester:
During the Fall semester, the first module entitled EXPLORE will take place. This module will help you find solutions by helping you explore your problem and help you develop potential solutions that are more fitting.

Spring Semester: 
During the Spring semester, the second module, called BUILD, will take place. This module will focus on the go-to-market strategy, validation, and financials in order for you to successfully make the first interactions with the market.

Fall Semester (version 2)
If you want to work more in-depth on your project and focus 100 % on it, you can attend the FOCUS module, which takes place during the third semester of the program. During this time, you can choose to do your Master's thesis on your project and thus dedicate a full semester to it.
