Entrepreneurship for Scientists

Scientists are natural innovators. In this interactive workshop, you will explore your entrepreneurial potential. You will reflect on whether entrepreneurship is for you as an alternative path to academia or industry. We will give you insights about how the innovation process works as well as teamwork really can work for people and processes. Furthermore, you will get a first overview about an established business idea development methodology. The organisation Triathlon of the UdS supports and empowers scientists by showing them their possibilities to create their career path more flexibly.
