From PhD to start-up - how can we promote science-based spin-offs at the University of Stuttgart?

April 19, 2023

Successful project completion with an event at the AI Express Startup Center in Böblingen.

Yesterday, the Elements4Founding project concluded the RISE (Research, Innovation, Science and Entrepreneurship) workshop series with an event at the AI Xpress Startup Center in Böblingen. From January to April, the E4F team conducted RISE as a hybrid format. The workshop series was able to sensitise and motivate more than 80 PhDs and postdocs from 57 institutes at the University of Stuttgart to the topic of start-ups over a period of three months. 

We celebrated the successful conclusion with some representatives of the RISE participants as well as the Elements4Founding network partners, who supported RISE and presented various connection opportunities for teams enthusiastic about founding. Special thanks for the great success of the workshop series go to the participating researchers, the E4F team and the partners Startupcampus 0711, Youngentrepreneursinscience, TTI, Inma / Ungendered Values, sat:io, Design Factory Stuttgart and the Vector Foundation, which funds the Elements4Founding project.
