Research to Startup

Doctoral students learn how to create a startup from their research projects in Germany.

The research-to-startup (R2S) program

The research-to-startup course consists of twelve workshops, as depicted in the figure below. For each participant cohort, workshops are presented in sequence, one workshop every quarter. In the default case, a participant will stay with their cohort, and complete the course in three years. However, we run three cohorts in parallel, so there is one workshop every month, and participants can pick and choose to adjust their speed of intake to their situation.
