The Budapest LAB team constantly develops and experiments with exciting and effective methods for developing university entrepreneurial skills and increasing entrepreneurial willingness - both within and outside the school setting.
COLLAB – Business plan in a week
Budapest LAB and Moholy-Nagy University of Arts (MOME) have been working together for several years to provide inspiration and useful knowledge to young people about entrepreneurship. The first success was the “COLLAB powered by Budapest LAB & MOME +” series of events, which focused specifically on creative businesses and on occasion attracted more than a hundred spectators. The aim of the intensive week, which is announced every semester, is for the participants to gain practical experience by working on a real project with the processes and thinking that can be used to establish a successful business. Students from different disciplines (management, marketing, design, graphics, etc.) develop their projects through collaborative work facilitated by familiarisation with the design thinking and business model canvas methodology.
Family Business Day
Budapest LAB, in cooperation with K&K Magazine, regularly organises a full-house conference for family business leaders, attracting more than a hundred business executives. The practical and interactive event provides an opportunity for the relevant BBS research results to be communicated in a comprehensible way to the stakeholders, who can use them in running their companies more successfully. In addition, entrepreneurs have the opportunity to learn from each other's experiences to prepare for the challenges of business transfer.
Last year, as part of the Startup Safari series of events, a sweeping, moderated discussion, the so-called Startup Dispute was organised by Budapest LAB. In this exciting format little-knowe in Hungary, two teams argue the pros and cons of a particular professional issue. The two teams were led by LAB experts, along with key ecosystem actors, to engage in a fun yet meaningful discussion.
External lectures, workshops
In addition to scientific appearances, the LAB regularly holds lectures and training for or in cooperation with external partners. Among other events, at the World Economy Family Business Conference, the Innovation Summit conference organised by Schneider Electric, the Design Week Budapest series of events, the Budapest Enterprise Agency Smart Budapest conference, or at the invitation of the Mathias Corvinus Collegium.
