IST Entrepreneurship Lab

Instructor: Markus Wanko, Astrid Woollard

 

 

Description

 

From science-based ARM to tech startup Zalando, they all started with an ambitious idea that later made highly successful businesses. Join us at the IST Entrepreneurship lab, where you can explore your own ideas and learn the basics of commercialising research findings and starting up a company.

This course is open to the IST community; participants are encouraged to think about and develop a specific idea, but we also welcome participants who are still in the search phase.

Please note that this course doesn't carry any ECTS credits.
