Registration

Are you ready to take your first step on the way to becoming a full fledged entrepreneur?

The first stage is the Inspiration & Registration stage, which is held during the winter semester. From hundreds of applications we receive each year, a reviewing committee decides on up to 25 teams that will proceed to the next level, the e-School. Don’t worry though – all teams will receive high quality feedback from leading industry professionals!

 


The registration stage for BizTEC 2014 is over! But we will be back in 2015!

 
 

The exit is not what drives an entrepreneur; rather it is the tremendous urge for change and challenge. Remember that the journey is what is important.
