Online-Workshop: From Idea to Pitch

11th July 2024 || 10 am - 3.30 pm || online via Zoom
"You have been working on your research for a while, but haven’t figured out how to translate it into a concrete business idea? Or maybe you have many ideas and cannot decide which one to follow? Based on the Design Thinking methodology, you will try out different ideation techniques. You will learn what makes a good idea and how to formulate it for testing. The webinar prepares you for your next networking event, research presentation or elevator pitch. You learn and practise how to convince supporters or investors of your vision and personality. Develop your pitch storyline and receive feedback from our experts and an interdisciplinary team of peers, who are – like you – PhDs or Postdocs with the ambition to innovate.
