Introduction to the course topics:

This workshop provides an introduction to entrepreneurial thinking. We ground the workshop in the strong belief that the capabilities of entrepreneurship will be critical to every scientist’s or manager’s future career, whether he or she chooses to create a standalone new venture, becomes a member of the corporate world, or wants to excel in academia. The workshop is intended to provide doctoral candidates with an experience of thinking and behaving in the typical manner of successful entrepreneurs. The workshop will explore and examine the core features of entrepreneurship. The central part will be the identification and exploitation of new opportunities to create and capture value. We will also connect such endeavors to your personal motivations and goals.

Course aims:

  • Having completed the workshop, participants should be able to recognize the fundamental features of the entrepreneurial mindset, behaviors, and skills.
  • Participants will understand the central role of teamwork and how to manage it while identifying and developing entrepreneurial opportunities.
