Basement Academy

Alternative Business School - Basement - E-Learning Platform

What is the Basement Academy?

The Basement Academy is a course aimed at start-ups and the people behind them.

A unique concept is used to explain business management in a way that makes it easy for everyone to understand.


Our vision is to show every interested person, the possibilities to find their way in entrepreneurship and to take advantage of the opportunities that present themselves. We know from practice: There is often a lack of knowledge and information, not motivation and ideas. Many give up on the way to independence because they cannot master certain hurdles. The reason for this, however, is not a lack of ability, but simply the fact that it is sometimes difficult to keep track of the individual steps of entrepreneurship. Like in a  confusing jungle, we sometimes have the feeling of not seeing the forest because of the trees.


Tried and tested in practice, we at Basement - the alternative Business School - have developed a structure that allows you to determine your own location at any time. This structure is unique and was developed specifically for Basement.

Wherever you are - whether in the planning stage or during implementation - you can define where you stand and what the next step in the implementation is at any time based on the structure. Practical examples help to make use of complex interrelationships in business management and provide many implementation tips.


Basement is a hot topic for start-ups and new entrepreneurs. That's why we not only impart knowledge but also accompany each individual course participant throughout the course in the form of checklists and regular opportunities for exchange in online Meetings. The course imparts knowledge and orientation but does not replace legal

advice, as this can be very individual in individual cases.


The scope for learning the study plan and the individual application according to our checklist System extends to approx. 4 - 5 hours per week over a period of one year. Of course, you can also learn and apply faster, and there is no time limit from our side. In total, you will need about 200 hours to complete the course. Though this is our target, the pace depends on each participant and the course can be completed fast.
