Startech programme is coming from WSL in Wallonia (Belgium, www.startech.be), with the original idea to inspire and support students from engineering schools to test and grow their entrepreneurial skills.
InnEO Space PhD will organise a Startech pilot for European PhD students with the aim of developing their taste for entrepreneurship spirit through idea of a company/application creation. Students will progressively expand this idea to reach a marketable prototype/project at the end of the coaching.
The sessions will target the different part needed to develop a successful business mainly the Value proposition, the Market segments, Pitch preparation, distribution channels, Customer relationships & revenue models, Partners & resources. It will be implemented at least one time as face to face, and one time on a virtual way. Each session will target 20 PhD students, and early stage researchers‘ careers.
