To make it easier for teachers regardless of their region and expertise to add new elements in existing programs or start teaching entrepreneurship.

We provide a short list of carefully chosen materials and present valuable sources for further reading. We don’t provide a recipe, but rather an introduction to understanding innovation and entrepreneurship.

Venture Cup strives to provide high quality hands on opportunities such as: Events, Workshops and Grand Competitions.

We believe all Danish Universities hold a great untapped treasure of innovation. Therefore, using our strong partnerships we reach out to all academic staff and provide free resources for innovation and entrepreneurship teaching.

We inspire university students and researchers to develop their ideas into successful companies.

  • 45min motivational talk on entrepreneurship and competitions by entrepreneur and Venture Cup UC
  • 45min workshop on either pitching technique, ideation or business plan development.

Why: It is crucial to motivate the students and show them that it is possible to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams while studying. The entrepreneurs/VC alumni have great stories to tell and provide good showcases. The workshops are a great opportunity to engage the students in a hands-on application of their knowledge, that shows them how easily their ideas can be transformed into tangible businesses and how it can be communicated.

Full Package

What: Integration into the full course.

Why: By partnering up with VC to provide inputs for a course, the professor will have a unique tool to focus the course on entrepreneurship, in such a way that the curriculum is put into context and the students gain insights into the application of innovative thinking. And while it motivates the students, it also enables the professor to measure the students’ abillity to apply the learned knowledge to their own ideas and dreams.
