X-Tech Entrepreneurship programme

X-Tech Entrepreneurship is a DTU programme that helps Master’s students create the backbone of their own start-up company.

The programme brings the best technological ideas forward by joining engineering students from DTU, business/marketing students from CBS and CPH Business, and inventions/patents/technological needs from Danish companies and DTU’s research.

The outcome: A prototype, a business plan, and a spinout-team ready to explore a new business venture.

Since 2010, the programme has existed as HardTech Entrepreneurship course, but has now been further developed to also include disciplines from all around DTU including; life science, digital health, water, food and agriculture and IOT. Thus the programme is now called X-Tech Entrepreneuship.
