Last week Chalmers were visited by Prince Daniel and the ”Prince Daniel’s Fellowship and Entrepreneurship Programme”, a mentor and entrepreneurship programme run by IVA (The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Science. The purpose of the visit was to encourage more young people to become entrepreneurs.
The prince was joined on stage by experience entrepreneurs who told their stories and gave their best tips. Later they where also joined by our own professor in entrepreneurship, Mats Lundqvist, who talked about how Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship offers young people a chance to get an entrepreneurship education and to kick-start their entrepreneurial venture. An excellent example of this journey is alumni Sara West, currently running WaveTube. Sara gav her story at the end of the event and got the chance to ask the invited entrepreneurs for their best tips and tricks for success.

Time for this year’s ventures to pitch their business ideas: Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship and Encubator invite you to join our Venture Pitch event on december 17th, where our students will pitch their aspiring venture in front of a live audience.
The projects were initiated in September and the students have worked hard this last couple of months to start verifying the technology, meet potential partners and customers, and begun writing their business plans. Now they are ready to present what they have done so far and how they plan to take the next steps.
Do not miss this opportunity to meet the next generation of start-ups currently being developed at Chalmers.
