entrepreneurial
culture and capabilities

innovation

The Centre brings entrepreneurship research and education together, which forms the basis for increased activities across departments and disciplines. Diverse entrepreneurial teams and early dialogue between researchers, entrepreneurs, industrialists, and investors are essential to successfully transfer technology from university to market and build ground-breaking solutions to real world problems.


Bringing together diverse entrepreneurs, from researchers to philosophers, ensures technology solves people problems beyond the confines of DTU. We educate, train and nurture entrepreneurial teams, and bring research-based knowledge of entrepreneurship into education and policy to build better solutions, businesses and futures.

RESEARCH AREA: START-UP CREATION AND SUCCESS

Fancy doing a PhD, researching into start-up boards?

The project focuses on understanding the life cycle phases and impact of a start-up board on start-up success.
Potential questions to be addressed could centre around the readiness level of the start-up and potential board members with regards to performance and value. This includes in-depth qualitative measures about the start-up (e.g. business gestation activities, survival, sales and employment growth) and their boards (e.g. incentivising and impact) and the development of suitable scales for measurers. This project integrates insights from entrepreneurship, management, and psychology.
