  • Simply sign up on our Training Platform Cirqus, and enroll in XPLORE Home Base where you will have immediate access to a fine selection of XPLORE Freerider Open Training. Do you want access to all XPLORE Freerider Training, even the more advanced ones? Then we want to get to know your team in an Onboarding Session. We’ll support you from there with our Coaches.

  • Well… yes and no.

    You can always join the XPLORE Home Base with a fine selection of our training sessions, regardless of your team status. All other sessions are addressing early-stage start-up teams and their challenges, which is why a team is required for those.

  • We of course love to get to know the team during the Onboarding Session - or as many members as possible. Some of our training sessions do require team participation, but that will be stated in the training description. For all other sessions, we are happy for every person joining but do not require each team member to be present. If you feel the topic can be valuable for all of you - then join the session with the full team.

  • Currently, all our training sessions are conducted online and live by our Trainers. Our sessions are conducted on a regular basis, so you can easily sign up for the upcoming sessions of your preferred training. This is why we at XPLORE Freerider do not have a time limit for your stay with us. Whenever you need training, you sign up for it.

  • Important things first. All our Coaches are obliged to keep all confidential information secret. This obligation extends beyond the duration of your stay with XPLORE Freerider. The purpose of the sessions with a Coach is to help you navigate through our offers and support you along your unique XPLORE Freerider journey. Also, they are your connecting dot to the UnternehmerTUM ecosystem and will share any additional suitable offerings to make you hit the next stage.
