Dear PhD reon to the five-day Entrepreneurship School from October 12 – 16, 2020. The goal of the school is to learn how to develop potential business ideas, based on technology and research findings and to train the skills which are needed to start and run an own business sustainably. Within the course you will learn the necessary tools to evaluate the market potential and set up a business plan which may also be an option to be considered for your own PhD project. 

The Entrepreneurship School is a well established course by Professor Orestis Terzidis and his team from the EnTechnon Institute at KIT. Prof. Terzidis will contribute his expertise from 13 years working experience with SAP. Amongst other things, he was director for the SAP Research Center in Karlsruhe.

This years’ edition of the Entrepreneurship School is organised online together with the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh). It will bring together PhD students and young researchers from KIT and the AUTh in virtual lectures and tutorial sessions. We are looking forward to having the brightest minds and enthusiastic future entrepreneurs on board.

You can find more information in attached document and online. For registration please follow this link. The course is limited to 24 participants.

Kind regards
