Do you have an interest in developing your teaching, course curriculum and/or supervision skills in the entrepreneurship space?
Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship (CSE) is the centre of entrepreneurship at CBS and collaborates with colleagues across CBS to create transformational learning experiences that enable students to explore innovative career pathways and develop entrepreneurial knowledge to help resolve the great challenges faced by society.
Our aim is to strengthen and support the quality of entrepreneurship teaching and education at CBS by providing a platform for connecting with entrepreneurial practice by way of empirically grounded teaching cases, action learning methods, stimulating dialogues with Nordic and global ecosystem partners, insights into extending research into action, curricular enhancements and more.

MORE ABOUT ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN EDUCATION AT CBS
Entrepreneurship education shows up across all areas of the CBS course catalogue and has been established as an essential part of the CBS academic identity.
The tools of entrepreneurship play a critical role in solving the grand challenges that we face as individuals, in organizations and society. To prepare graduates to become the leaders of tomorrow’s businesses, students must be exposed to a range of tools, mindsets, and theories to build their entrepreneurial, innovative and leadership competencies.
Whether the topic is focused on new venture creation or exposing students to entrepreneurial tools for internal problem solving, the integration of entrepreneurship in university education creates well rounded graduates.
The ability to bring something new and entrepreneurial to the table, in a way that is sustainable, scalable, and systemic, requires development of transformational capabilities further described under the Nordic Nine workbook.

WHAT IS OPEN ENTREPRENEURSHIP?
Open Entrepreneurship is a Denmark-wide initiative turning world-class university research into world-class companies.
As part of Open Entrepreneurship, we assist researchers and Ph.D. students by connecting experienced entrepreneurs with researchers very early on to explore commercial and innovative opportunities, and by providing the tools to develop research-based enterprises.
Open Entrepreneurship is powered by the Danish Industry Foundation and the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science.

01 Entrepreneurship can bring your research to life
Your research can make an impact on society. One of the ways to achieve this faster can be by spinning out a company based on your research.
02 There are cultural differences between academia and entrepreneurship
If you decide to start your entrepreneurial journey, you need to be aware of the different life cycles and that it takes a different mindset to working as a researcher, but there is help to get and it is definitely doable.
03 Validate your idea
You need to validate your idea and find your market – and the way to do this is to go out and talk to potential customers.
And the best piece of news is that you can learn it all during our “From Research to Market” workshop package at CSE!
