Hope you haven’t missed that we are hosting an event together with KTH Innovation this Thursday.
Research & commercialization – How to have time for both.
As a PhD student, you already have many of the traits that make a good entrepreneur. But a day only has 24 hours, and your research and personal life already makes your schedule quite busy. Is it possible to do a PhD at KTH and commercialize your research results at the same time?
KTH Innovation will come by T-centralen to talk time management, how you can create impact in society by commercializing your research, and how they can support you in managing both research and entrepreneurship without hitting that infamous wall. We will also hear from a PhD student who has started a spinoff company from their research.
Are you dreaming about starting your own company, or are you just about to start? Regardless of which, Prince Daniel’s Fellowship wants to inspire and support you to take the next step in starting your own company!
Prince Daniel’s Fellowship will visit KTH during the 21st of November to inspire students to become entrepreneurs. During the visit, Prince Daniel and the participating entrepreneurs Jacob de Geer, Susanne Najafi and Nami Zarringhalam will tell you about their experiences of running companies.
