RISE hosted an amazing team of experts coming from London to share their knowledge and experience. The hands-on approach of the training helped the participants to better absorb key learning points, to test their ideas and to work in teams. The workshop was delivered as a mini accelerator and participants were guided through the various stages of commercialization and startup building. The workshop included three sections, a) Development of entrepreneurial skills, b) IP protection and commercialization and c) funding process.
