Start up: Setting up your own company – How to start a successful business

The idea of this workshop is to explore in a hands-on manner what it means to build a business and the tools needed. The workshop is very practical and interactive in nature, giving participants skills and understanding that they themselves can apply to develop their own business ideas. The workshop is based on current entrepreneurship approaches, including the business model canvas. Participants may bring an idea of their own (including social entrepreneurship). A case study will be provided otherwise. No previous knowledge of business skills or innovation management is required.

The workshop will follow the form of lectures and exercises in pairs with discussion feedback. It aims to be very practical and interactive in nature, giving participants skills and understanding that they themselves can apply to develop their own business ideas. The workshop is based on current entrepreneurship approaches, including the business canvas model. It is designed so that researchers are encouraged to work on the implementation of their business ideas (including social entrepreneurship).

The workshop is especially designed to encourage researchers to develop entrepreneurial ideas (including social entrepreneurship). Participants may bring an own idea. A case study will be provided otherwise. The lectures will be given in English. Groups may discuss in German if preferred.
