Participated in two-day a workshop offered by the Graduate School of TU Delft, and took place at the Yes!Delft incubator. Topics included business model generation, business canvas, team-building challenges, lean startup, success/failure stories, etc. Participants (all doctoral students at the TU Delft) were divided into teams of 4, and each team had to pick one of the research topics of the group members to try and turn it into a business idea.
Our team picked a topic that was quite far from what I do: building vegetation (the vertical type that can be attached to the outside of a house or a building), that saves energy, prolongs the life of the building, provides better isolation (and thus reduces energy costs) and cleans the air from certain harmful material.
It was quite interesting that, despite the fact the remaining team members had no experience on the topic, we were able to contribute quite well to the business model/canvas, gaining traction, and ideas for generating profit. See photos below! (Full of post-its).
