LEVEL D - Doctoral Workshops/Symposium

 
ECTS CREDITS Not Applicable

DESCRIPTION The first part of this workshop aims to give a brief introduction to entrepreneurship and the process of starting off a business and draws parallels with doctoral research and the process towards writing and defending a thesis. The second part of this workshop aims to further illustrate this synergy by explaining the process of developing business finance proposals and going over equity finance presentations that were successful in real life.

Outcomes

By the end of this workshop, the doctoral researcher should be able to understand:

- what entrepreneurship is;
- what entrepreneurship is not;
- the steps involved in setting up a start-up;
- the process of using the ‘Problem – Solution – Benefits’ model to identify key outcomes from a programme of research and how to use those in order to illustrate its ‘value’.
