Three questions for Finn Tryggvason

November 18, 2021

"Three questions for..." is a format of the regularly published newsletter for Startup & Entrepreneurship at the University of Stuttgart. Here, people from the ecosystem of the University of Stuttgart introduce themselves, report on their experiences with the topic of "startup and entrepreneurship" and reveal tips for people interested in founding a company.

1. Please briefly introduce yourself and your current job.

I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Stuttgart, as well as an early stage researcher in the EINST4IN project. New technologies and Industry 4.0 are my main fields.


2. How did you get involved in entrepreneurship?

During my studies, I realized that a technology by itself is insufficient. Therefore, I wanted to know more about what constitutes a successful company and started my studies in "Innovation and Business" in Denmark.


3. What tip would you give to students who are enthusiastic about founding a company, who are currently thinking about founding a company or who have already taken the first steps towards self-employment?

Don't be too perfectionistic in your approach, it's better to have something preliminary than nothing.
