Lecturing Innovation Methods and Entrepreneurship for students in the department of Chemistry and Advanced Material Engineering

During this course I bring students in contact with the world of innovation in the context of product development in startups and enterprises. They get to hear what it takes to successfully innovate in different environments. Mixing lectures with interactive workshops and acual project work students get to go through the process of research, problem definition, creation of value proposition / product vision / MVPs, Agile project planning, actual pitch presentation and early testing. What is most important that they leave the class feeling empowered to really bring about change to change how sustainable business can be done in the future.
