What is the Quantum Entrepreneurship Laboratory?

20 Students | All Disciplines | One semester | 4 Prototypes |
6 ECTS ~ 180h

The Quantum Entrepreneurship Laboratory is a project-based course that brings together students of different backgrounds with reputable industry partners and selected quantum specialists to explore new commercial applications of quantum computing

Real-world challenges
You will learn the potential of quantum technologies by building a technical proof of concept and a business model to make a product out of it
Real entrepreneurial experience
The only way to learn how to build a company, is to build one. Next to that, this course is the closest thing you can do (;
Real-world experts
Defining a product is no easy feat. We feel you. That's why you will receive input lectures from world-class experts, that support you in the product development journey

Timeline

The course comprises five different phases. The expected workload after the bootcamp week is ~14h of teamwork and a mandatory attendance expert keynote of ~2h.
Kick-off Bootcamp

Week 16

In the first week, you'll be trained in the foundations of the opposite domain (Quantum Science or Business) and get to know your colleagues

Ideation Phase

Weeks 17-20

In this phase, you will deep dive into the value chain of your challenge partner, to better understand their challenges and come up with a shortlist of ideas

Prototyping Phase

Weeks 20-23

You will narrow down the ideas to a single one. You will build a technical prototype and business plan that you will present in the midterm pitch

Shipping Phase

Weeks 24-26

Based on the collected feedback, you will refine the features and business model for your quantum product, preparing towards the final Demo Day

Delivery Phase

Weeks 30-33

After your exams, you will  combine the previous deliverables into a project playbook and groom the software repository
