Initiate is the inspirational program at SSE Business Lab which aims to encourage current students to build their entrepreneurial skillset.
Initiate is a garage program, which serves as an innovation factory for those who are interested in starting a venture. It is run in collaboration with KTH Innovation and KI Innovations.
For current students of collaborating universities, Entrepreneurship Society organizes the inspiration event series Startup School and the yearly hackathon Hackin’. Together with the collaborating universities, SSE Business Lab also organizes the pitch events Sthlm Pitch Meetup.
Hackin' is full-day hackathon organized by SSE Business Lab together with Entrepreneurship Society (SASSE), KTH Innovation and KI Innovations, to connect students who want to start their own company in 12 hours.
Great startups are built with diversity and that is why our vision with Hackin' is to connect driven and curious students from multiple disciplines and backgrounds to lay the grounds for great teams. Join 99 other students - from Bachelors to Doctorates and MBAs - and solve the problems of tomorrow.

Initiate at SSE Business Lab
Initiate is also a pre-incubation program at SSE Business Lab, which serves as a validation pad for teams to develop their venture idea in the same office space as the Incubate-companies.
During the year, teams are accepted on a rolling basis into the program of 3-9 months. The purpose of the program is to enable venture teams to build their MVP and move on to the Incubate program as they finish.
In the program, the team receives office space and access to the valuable network of other entrepreneurs in the environment.
