From Science to Startup

Are you searching for a platform to convert your idea or research into a successful start-up?

Do you want to gain hands-on experience on lean canvas and pitching ideas with the guidance of our experienced executives?

The “From Science to Start-up” workshop is the thing for you! 

Through our university career we are mainly focused on scientific research but as soon as we are exposed to the real world we have no clue on how to convert our discoveries to useful and successful business. 
This event gives you an unique opportunity to bring ideas into action and learn useful methodologies to step into the entrepreneurship world.
