AWAKE - Become a Startup in six weeks

In a six-week crash course, the participants learn what is important as a founder

Awaken your entrepreneurial spirit and discover your start-up skills through your own projects. In our six-week intensive course, you will be professionally guided from the idea to the prototyping to the pitch. Three credit points are allocated for the course.

The module is organised around the ongoing lecture blocks to show that you can already pursue your own start-up projects during your studies. You will work together in interdisciplinary teams and develop individual business models. Each team receives advice from various internal and external coaches.

AWAKE takes place in close cooperation with ASAP BW (

Although the course is officially held in German we aim to provide a friendly and supportive environment for non-German speakers. The slides and support material of the course are available in English, our instructors and startup coaches are English speaking, you can form English-speaking teams and you can hand in the final reflection report in English.

This SQ takes place every semester.
