Jaqueline in Lisboa – Monat 3

Drei Monate ist unsere Jungunternehmerin Jaqueline nun schon in Portugal für ihren Erasmus-Austausch. Sie übernimmt vielfältigen Aufgaben, um das Start-Up Ihres Gastunternehmers bekannter zu machen.

Developing a Marketing Strategy

Now I’ve been with Build Up Labs for over three months. I used June mainly to develop marketing strategies. I was able to finalize and present the social media strategy for our LinkedIn page. The goal for the next weeks will be to develop a continuous posting schedule. To simplify the process, all postings will be scheduled two weeks in advance and automated by using the tool Hootsuite. This not only saves time, but also guarantees high impressions and engagement rate. Jaqueline in Lisboa – Monat 3 weiterlesen

Jaqueline in Lisboa – Monat 2

Jaqueline ist nun schon ihren 2. Monat in Lissabon. Die erste Eingewöhnung in die neue Stadt und das neue Unternehmen sind vorüber, nun kann sie schon in viele Aufgaben tiefer einsteigen….

In my second month at Build Up Labs, I was able to complete some of the tasks I had already started. I was also able to further expand the social media strategy for the incubator. Together with a colleague, we conducted a social media analysis in which we recorded which postings on our channels achieved the greatest attention. This includes impressions, click-through rate, engagement rate, etc. To analyze this, we formed various categories such as brand awareness, announcements, knowledge sharing, events, etc. and created an overview.

Jaqueline in Lisboa – Monat 1

Nach einer kleinen Pause hat BUPNET wieder eine Jungunternehmerin bei ihrem Austausch begleitet. Jaqueline hat für ihre Erasmus-Zeit die portugiesische Hauptstadt Lissabon gewählt. Ihren ersten Monat hat sie wie folgt erlebt:

During my first month as Entrepreneur in Residence, I have already been able to learn a lot in the field of strategic marketing. The goal of my exchange with Build Up Labs is to achieve a higher level of awareness for the incubator in Europe and attract new startups. For this purpose, one of my first tasks was to brainstorming possible marketing and social media activities. Ideas that I will implement during the next months include a Q&A for the company website and a newsletter for our network. Jaqueline in Lisboa – Monat 1 weiterlesen

Aimilia in Hellas – 2. Monat

Unsere Jungunternehmerin Aimilia ist nun schon seit 2 Monaten in Griechenland und hat ihre ersten selbstständigen Aufgaben für ihren Gastunternehmer durchgeführt. Welche das sind, erzählt sie uns selbst.

 

Second month in Greece and I am very happy experiencing all these new things. As September began I had to recruit Interns to join us for an Erasmus+ programme that took place on 14th-24th September. I was very happy because my Host was very proud of my choices. So the first 14 days of September I had to deal with the recruiting of an Intern and also to explain the area of responsibilities of the Intern for the Erasmus+ Programme.

Aimilia in Hellas – 1. Monat

Im August hat eine neue Jungunternehmerin ihren Austausch begonnen. Aimilia wird für 6 Monate in Athen bleiben und dort mit dem erfahrenen Gastunternehmer Apostolos zusammen arbeiten. Wie ihr Erasmus-Austausch angefangen hat, beschreibt sie hier.

First month in Greece and specifically in Athens and it’s better than I thought. Although I come from Greece, I never had the opportunity to live in Athens and now I am going to become better acquainted with Athens thanks to the Erasmus program. When I arrived in Greece, I had a meeting with the team right away. They explained everything I needed to know about public transportation and we learned more about each other.  They made it clear that they would support me in my steps and that they would be there for me if I needed anything.  I really feel like I fit into this team and I am very excited about my new work adventure.

Melanie in Amsterdam – Monat 1

BUPNET begleitet eine neue Jungunternehmerin bei ihrem Austausch mit Erasmus für Jungunternehmer. Melanie wird 3,5 Monate in den Niederlanden verbringen. Über ihren ersten Monat hat sie bereits einen Erfahrungsbericht verfasst.

 

The first month of my stay in Amsterdam is now over and up to now it has been an amazing and very exciting exchange. My host entrepreneur Gernot and his team from weGrow welcomed me very well and I felt like being part of the team since day one. Right in the first week of my exchange I could participate in a team session to prepare a culture map workshop for one of their clients and – later I also participated in the workshop at the client to see how it worked out. Furthermore, which was really the best start I could imagine, we had a team evening together, played laser tag, bowling and had some dinner. This was a great opportunity for me to get to know all team members better. Melanie in Amsterdam – Monat 1 weiterlesen

Jonas in Lissabon – Teil 4

Mit dem Januar endete auch Jonas viermonatiger EYE-Austausch in Lissabon. In seinem letzten Bericht lässt er uns daran teilhaben, was er aus dieser Zeit für sich persönlich und beruflich mitnehmen wird.

 

Is it over or has it just begun? Well, the EYE program is over, but my journey as an entrepreneur has merely started. Below I will layout a short resume of the 4-month program, share my learnings and successes, and give recommendations and inspiration to future participants.

All in all, I can say that the program was a success. Becoming part of beta-i, one of the leading players in Lisbon’s start-up scene, provided for an intensive head dive into the Portuguese Start-up Ecosystem. The connections I made there and on various events across all Lisbon have been and will be invaluable, and I am grateful to have met so many inspiring and motivated individuals. Moreover, moving to Lisbon and getting involved with the idea of Conscious Capitalism or Capitalism 2.0 (using the power of business as a force for good by focusing on all stakeholders and not just shareholders) and advocating for it has been nothing short of life-changing. It broadened my horizon and opened many opportunities. Jonas in Lissabon – Teil 4 weiterlesen

Jonas in Lissabon – Teil 3

Seit drei Monaten ist Jonas nun bei beta-i in Lissabon. Was er im Dezember alles erlebt, gelernt und erfahren hat, teilt er uns mit.

 

New month, new challenges.

It’s the beginning of January already and last month has been, both, insightful and exhausting. In the last month‘s report I announced that I switched my undertaking due to my newfound passion for social impact, the project’s possibility to affect many other lives positively and, well, the fact that my old project won’t provide the opportunity to sustain myself long-term. In this piece I want to explain more about the challenges that I faced when tackling the new idea and what I did to overcome them.

The first and biggest problem was to define the exact problem I am tackling. While this sounds easy, it is actually a really hard thing to do. Jonas in Lissabon – Teil 3 weiterlesen

Jonas in Lissabon – Teil 2

In seinem zweiten Monat mit beta-i hat Jonas bereits einiges über sich und seine Geschäftsidee gelernt und beschlossen, diese anzupassen.

 

Time is passing fast, it’s the end of November already. This month has been filled with action: re-planning, pitching and pivoting. I have made many new contacts and I reprioritized the undertakings I am tackling.

It all started with the Web Summit – a huge event with 70.000 people from the tech industry – here I Lisbon. I was a volunteer and therefore had the chance to hear inspiring talks, get to know other start-ups, pitch a new idea and generate leads. New idea? Yes, I am switching paths: I will keep the Lacrosse platform alive, but I will focus the big chunk of my time on a new project.

Fenna in Wales – 1

Eine weitere neue Jungunternehmerin von BUPNET ist Fenna. Sie wird ihren EYE-Austausch in Wales auf einer Farm verbringen, die zugleich Bildungsangebote anbietet.
Fenna hat einen Bericht über ihre Erfahrungen der ersten beiden Monate geschrieben.

During the first month of the EYE exchange, I learned about the Cwm Harry Land Trust and their purpose of establishing businesses that are owned by communities. Their main goals are social cohesion and finding ways to protect the environment, which I find really intriguing. Their largest project, Ffarm Moelyci, which is a farm of 349 acres in Wales that is owned by several parties as a social project, involves a plant for converting biomass into charcoal, as well as a café that offers locally grown foods. I have been showed around and explored the farm area, as well as the biomass plant. Fenna in Wales – 1 weiterlesen
