INTEGRA Projects Inside the Venture

Since spring term 2013, our partner INTEGRA e.V. supports our startups with pro bono projects. The projects are very helpful - especially for startups that are in the transition to growth. Usually, there are 2-3 intensive consulting projects for dedicated startup support per semester. The team size is about 4-6 student consultants and the project horizons are usually about 3-4 months - free of charge. In a need assessment prior to project kick-off, the most pressing issues to resolve and the most relevant challenges to overcome will be identified and prioritized. Dedicated staffing ensures that the team can directly tackle the business challenges. If startups want to hire the INTEGRA team as a flexible task and research force beyond the Inside the Venture project, there are plenty of opportunities to do so at an affordable price. More than 20 highly successful projects can tell! Get inspired by a selection of project reports below.
