Are you curious about entrepreneurship?
Are you ready for innovation and open to entrepreneurial thinking? Then an excursion into the world of academic entrepreneurs could be a valuable addition to your knowledge! "Science meets Market" provides impulses for entrepreneurial career paths outside of traditional research. You will be sensitized to innovative business models, train central management skills, establish contacts with entrepreneurs and get to know your own founding personality. Presentation techniques, marketing and negotiation management also play an important role. You will find out why the human being is so important for the company's success and how you can gain financial resources for your goals. At the end of the program you will know exactly where you are and maybe you will soon become a scientific entrepreneur!
The nine-month program consists of a kick-off event, 8 modules with a duration of one to two days, a half-time reflection and an elevator pitch event (15 dates in total). Participation in the kick-off event is optional, but highly recommended.
