Open Entrepreneurship connects researchers with experienced entrepreneurs or industry experts to explore commercial and innovative opportunities, and hereby bring value from the universities directly to society.

Meet the team behind Open Entrepreneurship, and learn about the opportunities and exciting research cases at DTU Compute, DTU Fotonik and DTU Space, which are in the process of spinning out as research-based start-ups.
