October 2014
Ideas and Innovation Forum Frankfurt - Fostering the Spirit of Entrepreneurship
How to be a successful entrepreneur – Apply now:
 

The U.S. Consulate General in Frankfurt invites you to participate in this special program under the patronage of U.S. Ambassador to Germany John B. Emerson.

Entrepreneurial spirit is a key driver of economic growth and success. It is not just about crafting the right economic policy; it’s about creating a climate in which ideas and innovation can flourish. One of the best ways to transform innovative ideas into thriving companies is to share knowledge within communities, across countries, and around the world.  There are many instances of how German and American innovators, scientists, and students have worked together to shape the world we live in.  We would like to expand this German-American community of entrepreneurs by exploring some of the ways they have turned great ideas into great companies – on both sides of the Atlantic. 

Here’s how you can join us:

1. Follow with us the MOOC “Developing Innovative Ideas for New Companies: The First Step in Entrepreneurship” run by Dr. James V. Green from the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute at the University of Maryland.  The course runs from June 30 to August 11.  It is free; there is no fee to participate.

And sign up here so that we can share ideas and build a community:

2. Take part in four facilitated networking sessions, site visits, and discussions with fellow MOOC participants and innovators.  Learn something about the Frankfurt startup ecosystem.

3. Finish the course, receive a certificate, and have the chance to present your ideas after the 6-week program to industry experts and experienced entrepreneurs at the closing meeting.
