Business Trial Laboratory (B-LAB)


B-LAB or Business Trial Laboratory is a platform for ViA students to support and evaluate their business ideas before starting entrepreneurial activities.

The goal of B-LAB is to promote entrepreneurship among students and encourage them to develop their own business ideas. By providing necessary consultations and infrastructure, this activity also increases innovation and business development in the region.

  • You lack knowledge about entrepreneurship and business planning,
  • You do not know where to start and whom to ask for advice.

Who can take part in B-LAB?
