Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The participants will through a number of lectures meet graduates from KTH, KI and other Universities who have become successful entrepreneurs and learn from their personal experiences, and hopefully get inspired by their example. A basic orientation in law and patent issues that an entrepreneur may encounter will be given in separate lectures. All participants will in oral and written form present a short business plan based on their own research.

Intended learning outcomes

The participants should after the course have obtained a deeper understanding regarding the challenges and possibilities related to entrepreneurship.
A basic introduction to businessmanship will be given with particular emphasize on how this can be combined with technical know-how. It is further a goal that the course by telling success stories will point to the possibilities with entrepreneurship and inspire the students to start their own businesses. The course should seed business ideas and develop them in a first stage.
