Easy money’ for your start-up case

  • Tips & Tricks for getting DTU funding for commercialisation projects

Where can a DTU Proof of Concept grant or Discovery Grant take you when you are starting a business and what does it take to get hands on DTU’s ‘easy money’?

Come and hear more about that when Prof. Anja Boisen from DTU Health Tech talks about how DTU funding for pre-start-ups can get your project off the ground.

Several successful projects will also show up andshare their experiences with receiving – and spending – DTU grants.

In addition, PoC Board Member Lars Rønn will give advice on writing a great application and Project Manager Michael Persson will follow up by giving an overview of DTU’s innovation eco-system and resources.
