VentureClass East “SPACE53” by Marc Sandelowsky @ The Gallery
Oct 19 @ 7:15 pm – 9:30 pm

hoe Space53 het innovatiecluster voor drones wordt

 

De wereld zoals we die kennen staat op het punt om ingrijpend te veranderen. Letterlijk. Tankstations, wegrestaurants, havens, vliegvelden, parkeerplaatsen, ze domineren onze leefomgeving. Maar daar zou heel snel verandering in kunnen komen.

De drones komen de wereld veroveren!

Deze toekomstvisie wordt wereldwijd breed gedeeld, maar voor het zover is zullen belangrijke technische, commerciële en maatschappelijke hobbels genomen moeten worden. Hier komt het Twentse ecosysteem van high tech bedrijven, kennisinstellingen en overheden om de hoek kijken. Met elkaar, verwachten we een belangrijke rol te kunnen spelen in de ontwikkeling van deze bijzondere robots. Met dit doel is Space53 gestart, het innovatiecluster dat de ‘unmanned ambition’ van de sector gaat realiseren, en nieuwe bedrijvigheid en banen gaat creëren.

Marc Sandelowsky geeft sinds eind 2016 namens de founding fathers leiding aan de ontwikkeling van Space53. Marc is alumnus Technische Bedrijfskunde (UT ’86). Tijdens deze VentureClass zal hij natuurlijk vertellen over de ontwikkelingen die de dronewereld doormaakt, maar ook waar je tegenaan loopt als je daar in Nederland professioneel en commercieel mee aan de slag wil. Ook zal hij een inkijkje geven in wat er komt kijken bij het bouwen van een innovatiecluster in Twente.

Save the date: Thursday 19 oktober, 19.15 – 21.30

VentureClass East “Imagination in the Entrepreneurial Process” by Arjan Frederiks @ The Gallery
Nov 16 @ 7:15 pm – 9:30 pm

About the topic

At the beginning of every startup is a venture idea – an incomplete, rough, mental representation of what the company will be. From previous research, we know that creating these venture ideas depends on factors rooted in the past: prior knowledge of the market and industry, and prior working, managerial and start-up experience are important. However, when we create our venture idea, we envision our company in the future. How can we take the future into account?

Our imagination enables us to build a mental representation of this future company; it can create these venture ideas. It gives us a starting point and a starting goal in our entrepreneurial journey. In his VentureClass, Arjan will share the findings of his research and tell more about different imagination processes and how these can be helpful and harmful along the entrepreneurial process.

Dr. Arjan Frederiks is an Assistant Professor in the Innovation Management & Strategy department and the University of Groningen Center for Entrepreneurship of the Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Groningen.
