– Discover your inner entrepreneur

The Research Council of Norway provides one million kroner for a good business idea. NHH researcher Bram Timmermans has the following message to the students: – Discover your inner entrepreneur and apply for funding, he says.

Associate Professor Bram Timmermans, NHH.

`I encourage all students and student teams with a business idea to apply,` Bram Timmermans says. He is an associate professor at the Department of Strategy and Management, NHH.

The Student entrepreneurship (STUD-ENT) scheme is a national competitive arena in which students and recent Master’s degree graduates, in cooperation with a university or university college, may seek financial support for realising their knowledge- or research-based business ideas. The STUD-ENT funding scheme seeks to encourage entrepreneurship among students, promote a stronger entrepreneurship culture in the university and university college sector, and increase the number of knowledge-intensive jobs in Norway (Research Council).

`Why should NHH students participate in the competition?

`Many business ideas suffer an early death because there is a lack of resources. Here, the Research Council has raised one million kroner to enable students to further develop the idea, Timmermans`says.

Deadline: February 14

The Research Council's financial support is perceived as a quality stamp, and those who receive support will attract extra attention. In the next run, it will make it easier to get more resources, according to the researcher.
