Innovation, Finance, Entrepreneurship

“Innovation, Finance, Entrepreneurship” is a 3 week course through the Faculty of Business, Economics, and Social Sciences. Economic growth crucially depends on innovations. However, innovations develop under a high degree of risk and uncertainty and rupture existing structural patterns. Thus the rise and management of innovations poses severe organizational problems, and it creates special informational problems that can obstruct financing. Successful innovations require not only financial resources, but also a true entrepreneurial spirit. The aim is to provide knowledge on the economics, management and financing of innovations and the link of the respective concepts to entrepreneurial behavior and the creation and financing of innovative new companies.

The topics will be given in a series of lectures, laboratory experiments, and excursions. The aim of the course will be a comparison of different biological systems, showing both striking similarities and surprising peculiarities. Homepage:
