Co-operation with entrepreneurs
Aalborg University has taken a great interest in entrepreneurship. The university's efforts are made through SEA (Supporting Entrepreneurship at Aalborg University).
SEA offers business people a unique opportunity of getting professional advice and testing of knowledge based business ideas. In short, SEA can help you realise your entrepreneur dream.
All ideas and thoughts are different. That is why the offer by SEA comprises different arrangements, each adapted to a specific period of the process from idea to reality.
Training of entrepreneurs with mentor
SEA is continuously organising training programmes for entrepreneurs. The programmes are open to all interested, irrespective of educational background. However the business idea should have a knowledge intensive focus. The programmes function as introductory programmes to the incubator arrangement and are providing useful tools for development of business plans. During the course programme you will be attached to a mentor who will assist guiding you during the course.
The incubator arrangement
The incubator arrangement with SEA is an offer directed at innovative souls with an interest in entrepreneurship and start of business. Through the incubator arrangement you will be attached to internal and external resource persons with special knowledge.
Additionally, through the incubator arrangement you will get in contact with a. o. students with different professional competences that will challenge your expectations and patterns of thinking in relation to your business idea. In this way, focus will be directed on the interdisciplinary aspect around you and your business.
Consultancy for entrepreneurs
SEA cooperates with a large number of experts who are available for consultancy. Such consultancy may comprise:
- Assessment and development of an idea
- Preparation of a business plan
- Operation, sales and marketing of the business
- Loan and financing
To many entrepreneurs success is associated with knowing the right people and being able to draw on resources through ones network. At AAU, great efforts are made to prepare the framework for creating networks among entrepreneurs, researchers, students, etc (in Danish).
You can extend your network through Aalborg University's network activities. Here theorists and practitioners meet, where the common denominator for all of them is the interest in the subject of the network. See the total list of the university's networks (in Danish).
