VENTURE CREATION WEEKENDS
Venture Creation Weekends provide a hands-on experience where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if their start-up ideas are viable. Develop, test and launch your business in 54 hours.
Participating in the Venture Creation Weekend highlighted the importance of teamwork. For a postdoc who works primarily on their own project, it was such a refreshing and enjoyable experience to work intensely in a team.
I was encouraged that I could go on to develop my existing skills (such as communication skills, research skills, networking skills) to go beyond an academic career.
