Round2Lab is a program designed to help entrepreneurs take their business to the next level. The first edition started on 20th of October 2017 and consisted of five two-day modules running every four to six weeks until the end of Q1 2018. Participants left the program with a three to five year plan that provides the road map for sustained growth. The program was held in Vienna, Austria, primarily in German.
Work sessions were highly interactive and offered participants ample opportunity to network with international subject-matter experts, successful entrepreneurs, media and other relevant stakeholders. The primary focus of the program was on people, strategy, execution and finance, and the deliverable is a concrete plan and a road map to future growth.

Round2Lab will give entrepreneurs tools to define a scale-up plan for their companies. They will learn from experienced experts and from each other in a very informal setting. Most importantly, it will give them time off from their daily business to think about strategy and the future of their companies!
