Startup i Praksis


Do you have an idea from your studies?  And do you wonder if it could be turned into a business?  You can spend your 9th semester finding out!
If you choose to do an internship in your own business you will get practical experience like in a regular internship, but you will also put your academic knowledge to the test in a business setting.

During the internship you will have a chance to gain:

  • Valuable entrepreneurial and innovative skills together with other students also doing an internship in their own business.
  • An opportunity to be creative and innovative in a dynamic environment, where you define your own assignments.
  • Unique experience and knowledge that gives you a different professional profile and prepares you for the future job market – whether you end up starting your own business or not.

In addition, we offer you:

  • An office space in the AAU Incubator, where you sit with other AAU startups, as well as students doing the same internship as you.
  • Guidance from our business developers, and access to a large network of business people and entrepreneurs.
  • A series of startup-related workshops, where you are taught the basics of starting a company.


We have ongoing admission to the program, and a limited amount of students can participate.

Applications for Startup In Practice 2022

Meet participants from Startup I Praksis

Rasmus og Mads says about Startup i Praksis:

”It is amazing how well organized you can become in one month. Through Industrial Design we have learned methodology and gotten theoretical tools. Through our startup we have gotten a perspective on how what we have learned can be used in reality”.
