(Advanced) Starter Seminars 2015

Boost your background in entrepreneurship and launch your own business

The VUB Technology Transfer Interface (TTI) wishes to create more awareness of entrepreneurship with researchers and young professionals. Since 1995 TTI organizes the Starter Seminars, in collaboration with the VUB Business department. These seminars provide a short but intensive course on the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and business. In 12 evening sessions, a variety of topics is covered such as developing a business plan, finance, marketing, the complex issues surrounding patenting,... . Students of this program will acquire the vocabulary and mindset needed to think intelligently about their potential venture and thus interact more efficiently with tech transfer offices, investors and other partners.
Since 2014 we introduced a follow-up course, the Advanced Starter Seminars, where business aspects and starting up a company are treated more in-depth.

The Starter Seminars are especially destined to master & PhD students and researchers of the VUB but are open to anyone interested. They start on Tuesday Sept 29, 2015.
The Advanced Starter Seminars are destined to people who already have some background in economics. Preferably you have already followed the Starter Seminars or 'Introduction to business' or another basic management or business course. These seminars start on Thursday Oct 1, 2015.

A Certificate of Participation will be delivered to all participants that regularly attend the seminars (attendance list needs to be signed at each class).

Starter Seminars: 11 sessions on Tuesdays from 6.15 till 9.15 pm, Oct - Dec.
Advanced Starter Seminars: 9 sessions on Thursdays from 6.15 till 9.15 pm, Oct - Nov.
1 extra module for both Advanced and Starter Seminars on Tuesday Dec 15 from 6.15 till 9.15 pm
The Advanced & Starter Seminars are preceded by a LAUNCH EVENT on Thursday Sept 24, 2015.
