WHY
ENTREPRENEURSHIP
IN EDUCATION?

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 role of entrepreneurship education is to teach about, for, and through entrepreneurship.

The ability to bring something new to the table, in the form of the entrepreneurial element, in a way that is sustainable, scalable, and systemic, requires development of certain capabilities within a supportive educational environment. These capabilities become transformational for the individual, the organization, the systems we work within, and potentially society.

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.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

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!

If you want to know more about our workshops, events and resources, please contact Project Lead of Open Entrepreneurship at CBS, Pola Weryszko, pw.cse@cbs.dk.
