Business Case Coaching

20.2. - 24.4.2019
Time: 15:00 - 17:30
Location: Y-kampus City Centre

Do you have an idea that you’d like to develop further? Do you need support how to utilise and commercialise your idea? Would you like to network with students and experts from different interest areas? Business Case Coaching offers the opportunity to develop your business or project idea further in supportive and multidisciplinary environment.

The meetings during the spring semester form a journey from an idea to a more crystallized business model. Every meeting has a theme  (e.g. recognition of one’s own know-how, customer need, service design, productization, marketing…) that supports this journey.

Networking as well as sharing experiences and knowledge play an important role in the Business Case Coaching meetings. We also use some practical exercises and tools to deepen the understanding of each theme.

The main goal of Business Case Coaching is to develop participants’ capacity to crystallize, utilise and commercialise ideas and innovations. It is aimed at students and staff from any field of Tampere university community.

Meetings during the spring semester take place as follows:

Wed 20 Feb at 3.00-5.30 pm, Y-kampus City Centre (Tampere University, City Centre Campus, main building, corridor A0)
