Workshop for PhD students and postdocs: How much start-up potential does your PhD have? Develop your business idea! (March 5-6 & 26-27, 2020)

Entrepreneurial thinking does not start with a business plan or even a business idea. Rather, the approach is to ask: “What if you had to live off your PhD project/research project?“ Participants will receive insights into their innovative potentiayoungentrepreneursl and new career and development perspectives. They will get to know state of the art methods like Design Thinking and be encouraged to recognize and contribute their already existing skills and potential to the program.

This initiative by the Falling Walls foundation, developed in cooperation with partners in the fields of science and economics, communicates entrepreneurial skills and expertise to develop the drive for entrepreneurship among young scientists early on. This workshop is organized by the Falling Walls Foundation in cooperation with the University of Göttingen’s start-up support team, the University of Kassel, the University of Hanover, the TU Clausthal and Sartorius. Participation is free and mandatory for all four days. The Falling Walls Foundation will pay for all travel expenses of the participants. The workshop will be held either in English or German, depending on the participants.
