What we can help with

VERIFYING YOUR IDEA

Even if you could build it, would people buy it? We will recommend processes, frameworks, and activities to validate your assumptions.

HELP FORMING A BUSINESS MODEL

Many successful startups innovate more within their business model than with their products/services.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY STRATEGY

What should you think about when it comes to patentability, trade secrets, and legal matters?

FINDING FUNDING

For new ventures, there are many opportunities for smaller grants etc. We provide tips to navigate in this jungle.

ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS

All mentors have experiences from their own startup journeys. We help you question your assumptions and make you come up with the way forward.

AND MUCH MORE!

The mentor meetings will be informal and friendly. You can see us a sounding board that help you realise your best path forward.

WHAT THEY SAY

About us

Spark* Chalmers is a student-run organization providing free mentorship to all Chalmers students that have a business idea. We at Spark* hope to inspire you as a student to pursue your ideas and we will guide you to take it further. Our goal is to develop your entrepreneurial mindset and skills by supporting you during your entrepreneurial journey, regardless of how mature your idea is.

 

Spark* Chalmers was initiated by Chalmers Innovation Office and is currently run by students studying at Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship. The idea comes from The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), where they are successfully running a similar programme. To date, Spark* NTNU has worked with more than 400 projects and helped over 1500 students. 68 projects are still active and around 50 limited companies have been established.
