Are you an entrepreneur, a startup or an academic researcher with a great invention? To turn your invention into the real value it is likely that you at a certain point will need to approach a larger global company. It could be to set up a technical joint venture, to get a first large customer or simply to sell your invention to the company.

This course is a very basic course for inventors who never have collaborated with larger companies before. The aim is to give you a basic understanding of the typical innovation process in a larger company and highlight some risks and bottlenecks for the inventor approaching the company. The course also covers Open Innovation as a door opener to larger companies, as well as tips, do’s and don’ts in pitching and negotiation.
