Overview

Business Creation Track

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program at the EIT Manufacturing Doctoral School allows Manufacturing PhD students to gain and develop the skills and capabilities needed to valorize their expertise and research into the market. The version of the I&E Program that is called “Business Creation track” is meant for those PhD students that want to valorize knowledge, research findings, and related market insights, ready to become an entrepreneur or intrapreneur. The track consists of two one-year programs: In year 1 the participant starts with learning “How to develop a business idea”, and in year 2 the participant continues exploring “How to validate a business idea and how to prepare for a launch”.

Business Creation Track: How to create an idea

During this programme you will go through three different phases that will guide you in the development of a business idea.
Self-discovery (April-May)
Explore your own/team potential and define in what business ecosystem they would fit best to start an entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial manufacturing project
Market exploration (May-July)
Explore the market for societal, economic and environmental problems that can be solved
by the manufacturing research.
Ideation (Sept-Dec)
Develop a solution that solves the problem(s) they have discovered for the benefit of the sector and society.

At the end of this programme you can continue and attend either the year 2 of this track: “Business Creation track: How to validate a business idea and how to prepare for a launch”, or you can switch to “Awareness and Orientation track: How to validate a business idea and how to prepare for a launch”.
