  3. Insight of how and where to pitch for finances, what funds are available now, and how to apply for them.

This program is for you if:

  1. Science-driven innovation excites you.
  2. You want to create a business with high added value.
  3. You are in a search of new and meaningful career path.
  4. Eager to challenge yourself, learn new skills, and immerse in a world where business blends with science.
  5. Serial start-up entrepreneur but this time you want to explore a new area and start a new business.

Dear scientists! If you have scientific achievements you would like to commercialize, however, you prefer focusing on your research rather than entrepreneurship, we have a solution for you as well. Apply for the program's "Scientific flow" and learn how to choose the right type of commercialization and work in a team with entrepreneurs.

If you are a scientist and want to commercialize your scientific achievements, but do not want to do business yourself, choose the Scientific flow when you register, and we will explain to you how to choose the right type of commercialization and how to work in a team with entrepreneurs.

!!! This learning program will be free of charge.
