Kick-off for 10th CPI round at UAS STP

The CPI program at the University of Applied Sciences St. Pölten started its 10th run. In 2013, it was developed in cooperation between the University of Applied Sciences St. Pölten and accent Inkubator GmbH and subsequently implemented for the first time. Since then, numerous teams have applied annually to advance their business ideas in the program.

Jury meeting

At the jury meeting on 22.09.2022, 7 motivated student teams appeared before our independent jury of experts. This time the jury consisted of Gerhild Eigner (Office of the Lower Austrian Provincial Government), Stephan Heher (Lower Austrian Chamber of Commerce), Eric Weisz (Circly) and Michael Moll (accent Inkubator GmbH).

Of the promising ideas, the five teams Colegio, Queery, Skill Swap, Lento and Stafety were particularly convincing and were thus accepted into the CPI program.

Welcome and first workshop

After a small round of getting to know each other and information during the CPI Welcome Event on 29.09., the teams started directly into their first workshop day.

During the workshop "Business Model Design" with Georg Stampfl, different business models were intensively examined and the importance of the right model for the own idea was clarified. Numerous other workshops and coaching sessions await the teams in the coming months to further develop their ideas.

The CPI was developed in cooperation between the UAS St. Pölten and the accent incubator.
