Within a six months programme of 2nd cohort, there are 5 weeks of workshops and 5 weeks of consultation hours. Workshops topics are following: Customer Problem and Profile, Value Proposition Canvas & Competitors, Business Model Canvas, Business Costs & Financing, Market research and Business Planning, Starting a Business (Legal Framework and Bookkeeping System) and Pitching deck.
Mentoring and consultation hours are provided by our 3 mentors, each specialized in a different segment of business development. Depending on a case, a team might be advised to get in touch with some of our contacts, external associates and professionals in specific business segments, to seek further information, help and/or cooperation.
During exchanges, our teams are given valuable networking opportunity as well as additional workshops.
After exchanges, there are two months (July and August) of one-on-one mentoring where teams can seek out consultations hours with Playpark mentors. By mid-August and after the xChange tool results, mentors will decide on the finalists and start to work with them for the Finals pitch presentation. After the 2nd cohort training & mentoring program, participants have the opportunity to attend again needed lectures for free. Playpark Rijeka will continue supporting 2nd cohort teams by providing consultations for free regarding their further idea/business development until the end of a CERIecon project lifetime.
