The areas of Business Starter
TBStart: if you have an idea, TBS Business School provides 5 hours of individual coaching so you can develop it. This is a flexible and reactive tool for any student who wants to start outlining a business concept and can be accessed at any point during the year without any pre-evaluation requirements.
TBSeeds: the incubator is a learning tool that accommodates TBS Business School students and helps them to develop and complete business creation projects thanks to personalized assistance and training seminars. If your business idea is selected by the Business Starter evaluation committee, you will be offered 50 hours of collective workshops (regarding topics such as law, tax, branding, website, pitch, etc.), a physical space in a local coworking center in Barcelona and 30 hours of personalized coaching. Places in TBSeeds are opened twice a year, in January and June.
Internships: with the prior approval of an evaluation committee, you can validate the compulsory internships in your syllabus and dedicate them to creating your business with the assistance of an entrepreneurial tutor. To secure the commission’s endorsement, you must present a dossier; pre-selected projects are presented orally before the committee. Individual coaching sessions will be available to you throughout the internship period (approximately one session per month). The internships will be assessed in the same way as the internships with companies.
Due to the current situation, for those students who have not found an internship with a company, from TBS in Barcelona, as an alternative, they are proposed to carry out a reflection work based on a theoretical theme. In it, students must investigate, document, find a problem and contrast it with three companies in the study sector to draw conclusions.
