ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION

BRING YOUR INNOVATIVE IDEA TO THE WORLD

Starter Seminars 2021 vector

Are you a researcher, postdoc, doctoral or master student at the VUB?
Or young professional from outside the university?
Interested in learning some more on the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and business?

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.

Technology entrepreneurship within the VUB educational 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.

More info on VUB programmes for non-economists here.
