Background

Today we all acknowledge that global society face a number of challenges that need new and creative solutions. Adding to that, we need to learn how to handle uncertainties and unpredictable situations in a productive and progressive way. In order to cope with these challenges and uncertainties there is a call for more entrepreneurial knowledge and skills.

Aim of the course:

This course aims to:

  1. introduce students to the development process of an entrepreneurial project,
  2. introduce students to the entrepreneurial mindset that is needed for the development process to take place, and
  3. introduce students to the dynamics of team work.

The course contains online lectures on five different occasions and individual work. At the end of the course there will be a two-day hackathon when the students will work in teams with the task to deliver a solution to a challenge.

The hackathon will take place on site in Lund. Students will receive a scholarship to meet their costs for travel and living. More information on travel arrangements, accommodation etc. will be sent to accepted students. LU students participating in the course will not receive the scholarship.
