Nowadays, the world is asking a researcher 2.0: a researcher that is able to translate research into business opportunities and that is able to communicate at the same level as an industry: the Entrepreneurial Researcher. This requires the researcher to acquire entrepreneurial skills. The Bootcamp “The Entrepreneurial Researcher” teaches you how to transform the outputs of your research into business opportunities.
You will learn everything you need to know as a researcher about business modeling, pitching, financing, and patents in just three days.
