about the program
The aim of this program is to open up new career and development perspectives for highly qualified scientists who want to become entrepreneurs before or soon after completing their doctorate. Applying both design thinking and interdisciplinary teamwork, participants are encouraged to discover their existing skills as well as their potential. What’s more, personal contact with start-up founders and intrapreneurs from innovation-oriented companies facilitates an up-close exploration of the opportunities and challenges of entrepreneurship.
In the process, entrepreneurial thinking does not begin with the business plan. Rather, the beginning is embedded in play: “How much start-up can you find in your dissertation?”
