Offers for the qualification of scientists

We are convinced that everyone in Germany has the potential to become an entrepreneur. Working passionately on a topic, developing new solutions to problems and presenting ideas convincingly - these are skills that successful scientists and entrepreneurs have in common. The academic environment is hardly characterized by entrepreneurial spirit. In our workshops, we would like to offer scientists the opportunity to think about their research in an entrepreneurial way.
