Session 1

Promoting innovators, risk-takers and job creators: the role of universities in promoting birth and growth of new enterprises

In the opening session delegates engaged into a lively debate about what matters most ‘right now’ in university entrepreneurship, and how this might change over the next 5-15 years.

OPENSPACE: good practices under the spotlight

Delegates met with peers in charge of entrepreneurship education, start-up support and partnership initiatives in promoting the birth and growth of new enterprises. Over 20 minutes exchanges and debates revolved around success factors, problems and transferability. Delegates could choose up to four initiatives from a pool of 17.

Session 4

“Action learning for change”

Delegates worked in small groups of 3 or 4 using action research principles. Each delegate brought a work-related problem that their fellow delegates will help them to think about. The aim was to help promote problem solving and creative thinking, rather than propose solutions.

Session 5

Partnerships and strategic positioning in promoting the birth and growth of new enterprises

Through their entrepreneurship support activities universities are opening up to ‘external actors’. By providing a helping hand, yet without taking away the ‘do it on your own’ drive, and by making support systems accessible and attractive for young entrepreneurs, universities play an increasingly important role in promoting the birth and growth of new enterprises. Yet, growing evidence suggests that success is based on partnerships and strategic positioning. How to manage this effectively in universities themselves, within the territory, the country and on an international scale, was the guiding question for this session.

Session 6

Searching entrepreneurial opportunities in Trento

In this session delegates visited, in teams of eight , the historical inner-city part of Trento. Their ‘city guides’ were students from the University of Trento who were planning to start-up their own business. Delegates were asked to:

• Identify entrepreneurial opportunities and to choose the ‘entrepreneurial opportunity’ that offered the greatest potential for being turned into a successful product or service.

• Design the “best support initiative” that can be offered to move fast from the idea into successful commercialisation.

Session 7

Taking it further

Delegates worked in the teams formed in session 6. The two main parts of the session were:

• FMP: Five-Minute-Pitch contest: the teams will present to an audience of “(rich) venture capitalists” their product/service.

• “Best Support Initiative” contest: the teams will present to an audience of “university managers and government agents” their support initiative. Key evaluation criteria were:
