Module 1:

From idea to project / startup

Whether you are starting from scratch or are already working in a project, you will examine what it takes to turn an great idea into a project or startup.


Module 2:

Lean Prototyping & Customer Feedback

Building a prototype to get feedback from potential customers is a challenge for you? In this module, you'll get practical tips and approaches to skillfully combine both.


Module 3:

Stakeholder Management

Stakeholder development and management is crucial for intra- and entrepreneurs to handle their project goals. Get to know the different types of stakeholders and the politics behind it.

Module 4:

Teamwork makes the dream work. Or to put it another way: Without a functioning team and togetherness, there is no success. In this session, learn how to win comrades-in-arms, form teams and successfully implement projects together.


Module 5:

The Sales Pitch

Thinking of standing in front of people presenting your idea makes you nervous? Not anymore after this workshop. Learn what it takes to not only convince decision makers, but to inspire them with your solution. And understand why the saying, "Preparation is half the battle." is so important.

Demo Day:

July 19, 2023 in Stuttgart

The ICM Accelerator demo day is essentially a showcase day in which you are invited to pitch your projects and solutions to handpicked investors, customers and partners.
