About the NEXUS entrepreneurship coaching program:

This capacity building program aims at empowering young researchers and innovators who are working on NEXUS related technologies with the needed knowledge and tools to turn their projects into startups, by addressing appropriate management of intellectual property rights, business model generation, risk assessment and access to risk capital by bringing together mentors, market players and by coordinating existing training systems developed in each country.

This coaching will cover five stages of the business development culture, from the mobilization to the continuous management of the business model, through the comprehension, design and application.

The training will last 40 hours, divided into 3 Modules taking place in October and November 2021. The full program and dates of the modules will be available soon. Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the training will be held in a virtual format, via Zoom.

Selected participants will be contacted with the confirmed time and date of the training and the detailed access information.

As next steps, participants will be invited to take part in the upcoming activities in the context of the NEX-LABS project, such as the NEXUS Innovation Week, Entrepreneurship Summer School and the NEXUS Idea Generation Program.
