Startup Academy FAQ

Which option shall I choose?

There are two different categories of tickets: STARTPLATZ Member – choose this one, in the case that you are a member of the circle of our customers, if not, choose this one standard. Whether you are a customer of ours or not, you can take benefit of our Early-Bird tickets!

I am not available when my workshop starts, what should I do?

Don´t worry! The Workshops of a Module are at least once every three months. Stay calm, wait a few weeks and you’ll get a second opportunity!

Besides interest, do I need to prepare anything else for the seminar?

No, at least if you are not advised to! Naturally, it might be very useful to carry a Laptop with you, in case you are going to join an IT or Software-Workshop. If you need more information, just take a look in the description of the seminar.

Honestly, there are some topics where I don’t have a clue how to handle these things. Is it still useful to visit these workshops, although I am an absolute beginner?

Yes of course! Every single seminar of the Startup Academy is a beginners-Workshop, so that is not required to have specific knowledge. At the same time, it shouldn’t prevent you from participating in case you are already equipped with deeper knowledge. If you think you are on an advanced level, you still can learn a lot about a topic! That’s why we only hire experts who have been involved in the topic for several years; so they teach you something you don’t already know.

Do I get a certificate for participating in the seminar?

Of course! Upon request, we will provide you with a Certificate of Participation underlining your new professional skills.

Can you invoice my payment?

Yes, If it is necessary to pay by invoice, for tax purposes, for example, simply click „Kauf auf Rechnung“ when you book via Eventbrite.

Are the seminar fees tax deductible?

Yes absolutely.
