Workshop: Prototype your PhD by Young Entrepreneurs in Science

How much startup is in your PhD and what does the product of this startup look like, if you realize it with the help of paper, stapler and dry noodles? In this two-hour online workshop you will learn Design Thinking methods and practice rapid prototyping with the help of our coaches, together with 20 other young and creative reseachers. This way, you will playfully discover the entrepreneurial potential of your doctoral or postdoctoral research project.


Input: Rapid prototyping and Design Thinking

Exercise: Build a prototype in front of your webcam or on the screen

Networking: Discover together how research can be transformed into a business


About Young Entrepreneurs in Science:

We believe that all of Germany’s 200,000 doctoral candidates have the potential to become entrepreneurs. The skillsets and key qualifications required to obtain a PhD are similar to that of an entrepreneur:  Working with passion on a topic, finding solutions for problems and promoting ideas in front of a highly critical audience. But what if they have not yet had the opportunity to reflect on their expertise from an entrepreneurial point of view? What if their academic environment is not yet, or only minimally shaped by entrepreneurial spirit?


Our vision: we want to stimulate cultural change towards more decisiveness and entrepreneurial desire among doctoral candidates, postdocs, and their supervisors, thus, in academia as a whole.
