Leaving Your Comfort Zone – How to Start a Successful Startup as an Academic
May 4, 2018, SIRA 2018 Event
Aim and scope
Startups and spinn-offs have become a major element of academic life in computer science. Running a startup, however, is not necessarily what successful academics are trained for. Indeed, we have heard some world-renowned academics, that running a startup was their most humbling experience. Others, in contrast, have become serial entrepreneurs and have combined their research capabilities with a steady pipeline of companies.
The goal of this workshop is to share some first hand experience on how to start your own startups. To that end we invited 3 successful colleagues, who will provide the inside view and one outsider, who will provide the outside view as an angel investor on succeeding with a startup.
The event will take place at the EPFL in Lausanne
Room BC 420, 4th floor of BC Building, School of Computer & Communication Sciences
