i²c STARTacademy 2018

During the i²c #STARTacademy 35 experienced national & international mentors and 6 lecturers supported the scientists in their endeavor to discover the commercial potential of their research by working side-by-side with them and discussing their business model, financial model as well as sales and marketing strategy. The novelty of this year’s i²c STARTacademy was the input session on ‘Business Ethics’.

Special thanks to the amazing mentors who offered their time and support to the innovative research projects from the bootcamp.
