The introduction weekend will kick off the UUBC. You learn to set your personal vision and by the end of the weekend you have formed a team with whom you will be working through the remainder of the course. ​Team​ ​building​ ​exercises​ and trainings on knowledge transfer as well as business skills will get your team up to speed for​ ​the​ ​challenges​ ​you​ ​will​ ​be​ ​facing.​

After the introduction weekend you will be set to tackle the first challenge: consult our client company. As you take on the role of a consultant, you will help problems that the company is currently facing. Through workshops given by consultants from top firms, you will get in touch with these companies. This will be a great opportunity to network and to get to know the different consultancy directions. Step-by-step, you will solve the case and present it to our client. Of course the best solution will be awarded.

To continue in this competitive spirit, your team will develop your own start-up idea. Your team will get the freedom to work on an entrepreneurial idea and bring it to fruition. Guidance from experienced entrepreneurs and professionals will help you develop a feasible business plan. Supported by inspirational entrepreneurs and insightful talks you will experience the true entrepreneurial spirit. During these weeks you feel the freedom, pleasure and pressure of being an entrepreneur.

To top off, you will pitch your business plan at the legendary Utrecht University hall to a big audience, including professionals and investors. On top of that, the best business idea wins a ONE-MONTH spot at Utrechtinc. Within their ecosystem, knowledge and experience, they will help you accelerate YOUR startup.
