The program is for early-stage entrepreneurs who are ready to go make an impact on a global scale. Participation is free – however, you must live up to the following criteria to join the program:

  • Have a CVR or CPR number registered in Odense Kommune
  • Have a scalable startup solution with a global potential
  • Have the motivation to learn and invest time and effort in moving your business forward

1. Learn the fundamentals through workshops

Over the course of four intensive workshop days we prepare you for scaling your startup business. In the workshops you will learn the fundamentals of areas such as sales, branding, fundraising and startup strategy.

Besides expanding on your knowledge during these workshops you will also be challenged and get individual feedback on your progress.

2. Solve the challenges you face with 1:1 sparring

In this phase of the program you can (potentially) get funding for external experts within a specific area that is vital for you and your startup. The expert will provide valuable 1:1 sparring that will help you solve the exact challenges that you are facing.

PreFlight Odense can help fund (partly or fully) for the 1:1 sparring sessions IF your startup qualify after completing the workshops. 

3. Learn to pitch your startup for investors

Attracting the right investors is crucial for the future of your startup. We help you master the discipline of pitching for investors through pitch training. When having gone through the pitch training, we will give you the platform to pitch your ideas and vision for possible investors at a pitch event with key stakeholders.

The pitch training sessions and the actual pitch event is free for startups who have completed the workshops and 1:1 sparring sessions and who are looking to attract business investment.
