About Huge Thing

About 2012 Edition

The first edition of the Huge Thing program took place in 2012 and lasted for 6 months.

Its applicants were people with ideas, who were building their first prototypes during the program. The program’s goal was to create a basic version of a startup with a global potential, as well as to develop a business model. The participants took part in workshops concerning areas of strategy, marketing, sales, entrepreneurship.

Program’s first edition was an initiative of Speed Up Venture and LMS Invest’s management. The program was divided into two parts. Three months of intense work were followed by a project progress assessment, resulting in 7 out of 14 teams continuing to work on their startups. They received funding of 30,000.00 PLN for their development in exchange for a 10% stake.
