Launch Event VUB (Advanced) Starter Seminars

Boost your entrepreneurship and build your own business


VUB TechTransfer wishes to create more awareness of entrepreneurship with researchers and young professionals and organizes two courses: 

  • Since 1995 the Starter Seminars provide a short but intensive introduction on the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and business. A variety of topics is covered such as developing a business plan, finance, marketing, the complex issues surrounding patenting,... . 
  • In 2014 a follow-up course was introduced, the Advanced Starter Seminars, where business aspects and starting up a company are treated more in-depth. In recent years new topics were integrated such as social entrepreneurship, crowdfunding, how to pitch your project, ... .

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.

Both courses are preceded by a Launch Event. The Launch Event is open to anyone interested in (technological) entrepreneurship and tech transfer. During this event you can discover more about the content and program of the (Advanced) Starter Seminars and listen to testimonials of VUB entrepreneurs.

Venue:  U-Residence, Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering Campus (Etterbeek)

Launch Event is free of charge and open to anyone interested. Registration obligatory.
