For students and recent graduates
At Lund University there are thousands of students with new and exciting ideas. Have you heard of Fitness 24/7, the invisible bicycle helmet Hövding or Get Raw snack bars? These are all examples of students’ ideas, generated at Lund University.
Do you have a business idea?
The University has an extensive support system for students and recent graduates who want to start a business or project. Among other things, it can offer advice, training and networking opportunities, as well as a first office space.

- free and confidential coaching by business developers
- inspirational lectures, events and workshops, and
- free office spaces for student-driven startups in an entrepreneurship incubator.
VentureLab is open to all Lund University students as well as recent graduates with business ideas. All ideas are welcome, regardless of:
