What is the purpose of your company? Why carving out the WHY should be at the beginning of you building a company, and how it will help you in inspiring others to co-create and grow your business. It doesn’t matter if you have already started a business or are considering to start one – this workshop is an invitation to reflect on why your company matters, based on the work of Simon Sinek.

How can we communicate our research results to the relevant stakeholders? How do we stand out from competing ideas? In this talk, we will look at two research projects with complex results & discuss the important lessons we learned along the way in pitching them.
