Have you always worked in a scientific setting and aren’t comfortable with business terminology?
This workshop will focus on fundamental terms and concepts for startup-founders. We will discuss various topics about founding a company, e.g. finding the right idea, team and business models. What does it mean to be an entrepreneur? How do I finance myself and the team? How do I identify the opportunities and the risks? What do I need to take into account? The workshop will include an introduction to fundamental concepts and a discussion about individual topics and participant questions. In the afternoon a startup founder will join the group to talk about their own experience and give insights into the startup life.
No previous knowledge is required or assumed for this training, which is both useful to beginners and people with some initial experience.
The Startup Academy is a program for Scientific Startups from the Potsdam Science Park and Future Entrepreneurs.
Different modules, interactive exercises, sufficient breaks and a mix of modalities (zoom, breakout rooms, phone, walk&talk) will be mixed throughout the day.
