VUB TechTransfer organizes two evening courses. The Starter Seminars provide a short but intensive introduction. The Advanced Starter Seminars are a follow-up course on business aspects and starting up a company. 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.
The Starter Seminars take place during the first semester of the academic year 2022-23. Click on the button below for more info on the program.

Economic growth is increasingly depending on the ability to innovate in all areas of society and economy. VUB tries to close the gap between engineers and (human) scientists on the one hand and the business aspects of starting up and managing a company on the other hand. Therefore VUB offers entrepreneurial education for non-economists within its curriculum.

VUB has more than 40 active spin-offs in different domains. Check out the spin-off portfolio here.
